The dynamic response of semi-rigid frames is studied by using a computer program. The connection flexibility is modeled by linear elastic rotational springs. Having the same geometry and cross-section; semi-rigid frames, with different spring coefficients, are examined. The reducing coefficients and lateral rigidity values, representing the real behavior of frames, are determined for each frame. To represent the real behavior, all deformations of a frame are accounted for a dynamic analysis. Response characteristics of five different multistory frames are compared with reference to their modal attributes. The study indicates that connection flexibility tends to increase vibration periods, especially in lower modes, while it causes vibration frequencies decrease.
