Abstract: Basic concepts; plastic design results in overall balanced design, makes for more economical use of material, and compared with allowable stress (elastic) methods, it is simpler design technique. Paper n 2092 p 27-50: General provision and experimental verification; types of construction, materials, structural ductility, yield stress level, plastic moment, loads and forces, and load factor.

Subject Headings: Plastic design | Allowable stress design | Load factors | Maximum loads | Yield stress | Construction materials | Conceptual design | Economic factors
