"In this thesis, a technique has been developed to determine the natural frequencies of plane rigid frames with the consideration bending, shear deformation, rotatory inertia, and internal axial forces. The internal forces are functions of the instability load of the vibrating system for which the effects of bending and shear deformation on the stability of this structure are considered. For the sake of completeness, the matrix formulations for the dynamic or stability analysis of a rigid frame are given. The stiffness matrices of these formulations are then derived. The influence of shear deformation, rotatory inertia, and internal axial force is considered in the derivation of the differential equations and the dynamic stiffness coefficients. Likewise, the influence of shear deformation is included in deriving the stability stiffness coefficients. The numerical methods developed are used for a dynamic and stability analysis of a two story rigid frame with Timoshenko members"--Abstract, page ii.
