Abstract: 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.

Subject Headings: Structural behavior | Shell structures | Concrete structures | Reinforced concrete | Material properties | Structural design | Plates | Prestressed concrete
