The paper, 'Alternative ultimate limit state design of steel sway frames - parametric study', was a sequel to recent publications in which a novel method to allow for the P-delta method was examined by way of a wider parametric study covering various sub assemblages and also a full framework. The method does not require the calculation of the effective column lengths and in principle would remain valid where fully plastic analysis is adopted by design codes. It was concluded that this extremely simple method could lead to savings in materials as well as in design time compared with conventional effective length-based procedures.
