54 Analysis and Design Principles

In the preceding section, the proposed advanced analysis method was verified using several benchmark problems available in the literature. Verification studies were carried out by comparing it to the plastic-zone and conventional LRFD solutions. It was shown that practical advanced analysis predicted the behavior and failure mode of a structural system with reliable accuracy.

In this section, analysis and design principles are summarized for the practical application of the advanced analysis method. Step-by-step analysis and design procedures for the method are presented.
