This paper discusses two advanced analysis methods, and their use in LRFD format. The first approach is called the notional load plastic hinge method and the second is called the second-order refined plastic hinge analysis. Investigations show that the proposed advanced analyses are suitable for use in limit-state design of steel frames.
