I'm preparing for the IStructE Chartered member examination in January. I'm looking for a very "quick and dirty" way of estimating the sway deflection under wind load in a steel building moment frame. Typical building bay width is 6 to 8 m and storey height 3 to 4 m. Could be any number of bays or storeys.
Been googling this all day but no success. Needs to be a 2 minute back of envelope calculation.
