The Moment Distribution Method

Moment distribution is based on the method of successive approximation developed by Hardy Cross (1885–1959) in his stay at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). This method is applicable to all types of rigid frame analysis.
 

Carry-Over Moment
Carry-over moment is defined as the moment induced at the fixed end of a beam by the action of the moment applied at the other end.
