Preface to Advanced Analysis in Steel Frame Design PDF

The idea for a set of published formalized guidelines for the use of second-order inelastic, or “Advanced”, analysis began in Structural Stability Research Council (SSRC) Task Group 29, Second-order Inelastic Analysis for Frame Design, chaired by Donald W. White.

The task group published the report “Plastic Hinge Based Methods for Advanced Analysis and Design of Steel Frames” in 1993.

The current effort is aimed at bringing the knowledge gained from the previous report and subsequent research efforts into a coherent set of guidelines that place Advanced Analysis in the context of the current AISC Specification while being general enough to adapt to other standards and to future editions of the AISC Specification.

The guidelines are designed to provide a methodology for Advanced Analysis that gives the designer specific recommendations on the rigor of analysis, minimum modeling requirements, consideration of limit states, serviceability, and live load reduction, while allowing latitude for the judgment of the design engineer.
