It has been observed that ECCS-related sway provisions for the stability of low-rise structures can be erratic. In some cases the ttructure designed in accordance with these rules had to rely on sundry composite actions or strain-hardening to reach the rigid-plastic collapse load, in other instances overly conservative solutions may be adopted if the rules are not immediately satisfied. The presented investigation thows that the recently developed rational multi-curve Interaction approach 17 gives a much better correlation with rigorous solutions without adding unduly to the workload of the design engineer.
