Abstract
This paper presents a simplified stability-based method for practical structural predesign of down-aisle unbraced frames of selective racks. Given the uniformity of actual racks, only a single upright and its adjoining half beams were modeled, discretized with two-dimensional (2D) beam elements; the flexibility of the upright–beam and upright–floor connections was represented with linear springs. Such a model is used for linear buckling and second-order analyses. The proposed method consists...
