The longitudinal axes of the cantilevers are assumed to be parallel while the main axes of the cross sections may have arbitrary directions. In addition to rigid diaphragms the flanges of the thin-walled cantilever may be rigidly connected by an elastic continuously distributed laminar system having bending stiffness in the direction parallel to the longitudinal axes. The analytical model is an idealization of a group of thin-walled steel members interconnected by equidistant lammelas or a group of thin-walled stiffening elements interconnected by beams in a tall building.
