Limit analysis provides a simple, a simple, rational and general framework for the ultimate limit state design of concrete and masonry structures. Starting from the basic constitutive relationships, this paper describes yield criteria for reinforced concrete elements and discusses the application of the static and kinematic methods of the theory of plasticity to reinforced concrete structures. In addition, supplementary deformation considerations are presented, including models for cracked tension chords and membranes. Some remarks on the application of limit analysis methods to masonry structures conclude the paper.
