Abstract

A procedure is proposed in this paper for the stochastic finite element analysis of frames with stochastic connection rigidity. A beam-column element is used to simulate the connection and its bending stiffness is assumed to be equal to the tangent stiffness of the connection, given by the slope of the moment-rotation curve. The randomness in the rigidity is then taken into account in the subsequent stochastic analysis of the frame. The proposed method is illustrated with the help of a numerical example.
