Plastic Analysis and Design of Steel Structures

The plastic method has been used extensively by engineers for the
,design of steel structures, including simple beams, continuous beams
and simple portal frames. Traditionally, the analysis is based on the
rigid-plastic theory whereby the plastic collapse load is evaluated
through virtual work formulation in which elastic deflection is
ignored. For more complex frames, specialist computer packages for
elastoplastic analysis are usually employed. Current publications on
plastic design method provide means of analysis based on either virtual
work formulation or sophisticated plastic theory contained in
specialist computer packages. This book aims to bridge this gap.
The advent of computers has enabled practicing engineers to
perform linear and nonlinear elastic analysis on a daily basis using
computer programs widely available commercially. The results from
computer analysis are transferred routinely to tools with automated
calculation formats such as spreadsheets for design. The use of this
routine procedure is commonplace for design based on elastic, geometrically
nonlinear analysis. However, commercially available computer
programs for plastic analysis are still a rarity among the
.engineering community
