Plastic Design and Limit State Design

Designs made according to the limit state of plastic collapse are not quite the same as designs made by simple plastic theory. It is however, possible to retain the simplicity of plastic methods within the framework of limit design concepts, and at the same time partially relieve the designer of unnecessary elastic calculations.
