The moment of inertia for the span, Ispan is five times the moment of inertia for the columns, Icol. Figure 217.1 Portal Frame Problem Sketch Material Properties Ex = 30 x 106 psi Nuxy = 0.3 Loading ω = -500 lb/in Geometric Properties a = 400 in L = 800 in Ispan = 5 Icol Icol = 20300 in4 I-Beam Section Data W1 = W2 = 16.655 in W3 = 36.74 in t1 = t2 = 1.68 in t3 = 0.945 in ANSYS Verification Manual . ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. 1–498 VM217 Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes All the members of the frame are modeled using an I-Beam cross section. The cross section for the columns is chosen to be a W36 x 300 I-Beam Section. The dimensions used in the horizontal span are scaled by a factor of 1.49535 to produce a moment of inertia that is five times the moment of inertia in the columns. The columns are modeled with BEAM188, while the span is modeled with BEAM189 elements. The theoret...
