Throughout the construction, unforeseen loading combinations on the scaffolding and the temporary facilities may occur. Since the site engineers have to take quick decisions, they make intuitive decisions, which may cause failures. In this study, moment distribution method based structural algorithm, which can run on handheld devices, is proposed to assist site engineers. Conventional moment distribution method is improved to solve the frames that are free to sidesway and settlement at once. As a result, the proposed algorithm can be efficiently implemented on hand-held devices, which have limited memory and processing power. Whereby, the site engineer can analyze any construction phase real-time and immediately take sound decisions.
