Serial Information: Journal of the Engineering Mechanics Division, 1959, Vol. 85, Issue 4, Pg. 131-156

Document Type: Journal Paper


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.
