Dear Celso
                    thanks for replay

               if you consider the capacity of the frame without bracing
              and moment connection btween the beam and column
              it will be unstable structure ,
              so you have to add momment connection or can we invistigate
              the cpacity of the beam alone not as frame, but as simple
              supported beam ?!
