Portal Frame - Worked Example of Plastic Design.

Determination of member sizes
Although the engineer may use his experience or other methods to determine preliminary member sizes, the graphs in Figs 11.5, 11.6 and 11.7 will be used for this example. In order to use these graphs, four parameters are required:

It is suggested that the next stage is to check the overall stability of the frame. The main reason for this is that the only way to correct insufficient stability is to change the main member sizes. If any other checks are not satisfied, additional bracing can frequently be used to rectify the situation, without altering the member sizes.
