Responsive Web Design Framework

Hopefully we can cover the major points and clearly explain what a responsive framework is.
Responsive web design frameworks are also commonly known as:

The idea behind a framework is what the word stands for a "Framework" - we define a responsive web design framework to be "A combination of predefined files used to support the development of static or dynamic websites."
The majority of responsive frameworks are there for quicker deployment, management and construction of a website, although in some cases in-depth knowledge of CSS and HTML is required.
Some examples of responsive web design frameworks:
