"This study was made to determine the effect of shear deformation on stiffness coefficients and carry over factors that are normally used in the calculation of moments in continuous beam or frames by the slope-deflection and Moment Distribution method.
Using the method of total strain energy, the vertical shear V and angle of rotation Ө caused by unit moment were determined for bending moment only and then determined for shear deformation plus bending moment, then carry over factors and stiffness coefficients were computed for each case. The relative effect of shear deformation is small for small depth ratio db/da but increases as the depth ratio increases"--Abstract, p. iii
