are less than 1%. Explicit imperfection modeling and the equivalent notional load method under-predict lateral displacements by 3%, and the further reduced tangent modulus method shows a good agreement in displacement with the Vogel's exact solution. Vogel's frame is a good example of how the reduced tangent modulus method predicts lateral displacement well under reasonable load combinations.
