This paper descriptionbes the development of a new method of model analysis which can be used to determine the plastic collapse loads and failure mechanisms for structures such as bins for containing granular materials, for which loading is not determinate, It consists essentially of constructing a model of a thermo-softening plastic, loading the model with suitable material, and then gradually reducing the strength of the model by increasing the temperature until failure occurs.
