Statics is zhe study of forces acting on a stmczure in equiiibnum. According to Newton 5 second
law a body 1n static equilibnum (i. e no acceleraon) requires that the sum of the forces acting

Introduction
Five different types of frame would be analyzed using SAP2000. For the first part, the frame was analyzed
using SAP alone to compute the maximum axial, shear and moment values. The second part consisted of
analyzing the horizontal beam of the
