Abstract: The arc-length method has been widely used in non-linear analysis of structures. While it can handle complex load-deflection paths effectively, the analyst has no control over the load incrementation scheme to achieve convergence to specific locations along the load-deflection path. There are a number of situations in which such control is necessary, for example when convergence to predefined load levels, displacement levels or stress levels is required. This paper describes an improved arc-length method in which this deficiency is overcome.
