Abstract:
Describes code development and design practices in the USSR. Design is on the basis of limit states. A brief historical outline is given going back to the early 1930s when the use of the stage of failure in design was first proposed. Discussion of the limit states approach to design is presented. Specific areas discussed include material strength, loads, strength of members, eccentricity, slenderness effects, shear strength, torsion, local stresses, fatigue, serviceability, deflections, and cracking.
