THE USE OF 2ND-ORDER INELASTIC ANALYSIS TO EVALUATE FRAME STABILITY FOR DESIGN. IN: STRUCTURAL STABILITY RESEARCH COUNCIL. 1990 ANNUAL TECHNICAL SESSION, STABILITY OF BRIDGES, ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, APRIL 10-11, 1990

This is a progress report on the authors' research on the development of computer systems for the integrated analysis and design of steel frames. Features that relate to the prediction of stability limits and the verification of these limits are emphasized. Included are summaries of ongoing research on plane frames, three dimensional frames, and the effect of partially restrained connections. Future directions for this research and the relationship of this type of technology to code based design are also mentioned.
