Abstract: This proceedings, Approximate Methods and Verification Procedures of Structural Analysis and Design, contains selected papers presented at the Ninth Structures Congress held in Indianapolis, Indiana from April 29—May 1, 1991. In modern structural engineering practice, computers are used extensively for the analysis of complex structures. Approximate structural analysis methods provide the engineer with rapid means for checking results obtained from computer analyses and offer intuition for understanding the overall structural behavior and response of the structural system under a variety of loading conditions. They are also invaluable tools in the preliminary stages for the design of complex structures. Thus, these papers help to introduce the structural engineer to these approximate methods for analysis/design while also reviewing the limitations of current methods.
