I was looking at the steel quiz in the 10/17 issue of MSC. I was able to pick up the problem quickly as I'm sure others have. However, I had a slightly different answer, I came to the conclusions that the framing plan shown had beams that required themselves for support and therefore would not work. However the article simply states that the configuration is difficult to erect. Is the framing plan shown even structurally stable utilizing simple structural theory?
