Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1962, Vol. 88, Issue 6, Pg. 127-148

Document Type: Journal Paper


Concept for direct design of structures applied to design of plates and shells; desired behavior is selected as design criterion, and proportions of structure are determined directly to satisfy it; concept may be applied to homogeneous, reinforced concrete, and prestressed concrete structures, and it allows optimum behavior and maximum material economy to be obtained.
