Abstract: Advanced analysis is a simulation and performance-based design method for steel frames recently introduced in many design codes including the AISC-LFRD (2005) as a norm for design of steel frames, especially for slender frames with a small elastic critical load factor. Being a powerful tool with saving in material weight, improvement in safety margin and reduction in design effort and time, the advanced analysis requires significantly more complex numerical methods and element formulation for insuring iteration convergence and simulation of member and frame imperfection and residual stress. This paper highlights the theoretical treatment for a proper second-order analysis and illustrates an application of the new design method for steel frames.
