What is a Portal Frame Structure?
Portal frames structures utilize a structural building method that involves connection of columns (vertical support) and horizontal beams or trusses. The vertical and horizontal beams are connected by rigid fixed joints, that are able to carry bending forces (moment resistant). This allows portal frame structures to be extremely stable, with simple foundations, that are able to withstand compressive and tensile forces.
The design of portal frame structures makes this building method a very efficient construction technique to use for wide span buildings. Widespan buildings are commonly used in industrial, commercial and agricultural environments, where steel structures with wide spans are required.
