Equation 2.238 can be used to produce a chart as shown in Figure 2.105 by which the value of Mp can be determined quickly by knowing the values of k - h2 and U~

h1 IwL2 Fixed-Base Gable Frames

A similar chart can be generated for a fixed-base gable frame as shown in Figure 2.106. Thus, if the values of loading, 1w and 11H and frame geometry, h1, h2, and L, are known, the parameters k and U can be x =
