3). For building frmnes of moderate size and height, prefimirrary and final designs will often be combined. Preliminary sizing of members, prior to analysis, may be based on designer experience, design aids, or simplified sizing expressions suggested in this manual. Arrafysisof a structural frame or other continuous construction is usually the most difficult part of the total design. 3 are satisfactory withkr the span and loading limitations stated. For cases when ACI 8,3,3 is not applicable, atwo-cycle moment distribution method is accurate enough.

73 (A1= 960 &qft for 2 bay areas). 94 (orrebay area). 73 (2 bay areas). 3 Factored Loads The strength method of design, using fsctored loads to proportion members, is used exclusively in thk manual. 2), and factored loads must be comb]ned in load combinations dependkrg on the types of loads being considered. 7L ACI Eq. 9), the factored loads to be applied worrfd be computed separately using the appropriate load factor for each lend. 3), where five loadcaabe assumed to be applied overtheerrtire structure, it rnaybeexpedlentto use a composite load factor, C, where U = C(D + L).

6 There is one final consideration when using factored loads to mouortion members.
