Suppose we have a rigid jointed, statically indeterminate frame with bracing as shown below:
Note: there would also be a distributed lateral load along at least one side of the structure and all reaction supports can be considered rigid/fixed.
In order to analyse this by hand (find bending moments, axial and shear forces), which method would I use? The main reason for the lack of clarity is due to various textbooks not demonstrating examples of analysing braced frames for statically indeterminate structures.
On a regular unbraced system, I would use moment distribution or slope deflection. However, for frames with bracing, I am unsure how to approach the problem. Any guidance would be appreciated.
