|This study includes the derivation of the stiffness matrix for a haunched
member using the simple bending theory. The derived stiffness matrix covers
most possible geometric shapes for haunched members under different
loading cases and combinations with including transverse shear deformations
effect.ِ The importance of the transverse shear deformation in haunched
members with high depth to span ratios is shown using numerical example.
The accuracy of the proposed analysis technique is verified by comparing the
results of the numerical example with those obtained from the general
analysis program SAP90 using a large number of subelements.
