Moment Frame Question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: Moment Frame Question
As far as I know, it's done quite often.  The effect is that the columns are spared some of the gravity load moments.  JPR

For a two story steel moment frame, a contractor is requesting to have the floor beam frame on top of the
first floor column, and the second floor column frame on top of the beam, as opposed to the column being continuous
and the beams attaching to the side of the column. what do you guys think?

Thanx for your input
