Abstract: To avoid long distance of travel, cities are growing vertically rather than horizontally. Construction of such tall buildings are possible only by going to a set of rigidly inter-connected beams and columns. These rigidly interconnected beams and columns of multi bay and multi-storeyed are called building frames. Analysis of multi-storey building frames involves lot of difficulties and cumbersome calculations by conventional methods. To carry out such analysis is a time consuming task. According to IS 456 (2000) clause 22.4 and BS 8110 clause 3.2.1, the use of substitute frames (sub-frames) are allowed. Analysis of substitute frame is made by conventional elastic methods e.g. slope deflection, moment distribution etc. Substitute frame method for analysis can be handy in approximate and quick analysis. This G + 4 showroom building designed with only manual calculations based on values here taken from the standard code book ( IS 4562000).
