The Global Critical Load Ratio Approach to Stability of Building Structures

Codes of Practice for structural design of buildings tend to cover sway instability in ways that do not relate closely to real behaviour. In this paper an approach is proposed to such critical load instability which is easy to use, relates closely to real behaviour, and can provide useful insights for structural adequacy.
