Abstract

Aiming at the deficiency of the current steel structures design code, the necessity of advanced analysis and design for steel structures is emphasized, and the basic principles and methods of the advanced analysis are discussed. Based on the improved plastic-hinge method, some factors about structural overall stability analysis and design such as the basic element, the initial imperfection, the joint connection rigidity, the material plasticity and second-order analysis are analyzed in this paper. The comparison between the current limit state partial factor method and the modified plastic-hinge analysis method is also presented. The calculation example results indicate that the method presented is efficient, exact and robust for the steel structure stability analysis and design.
