Abstract The stress-based Grant–Sanders method developed at British Aerospace Defence is described. It has been applied to a number of examples to produce envelopes of initial and final failure and stress/strain curves, all of which are illustrated in this paper. Unlike some other current methods, each strength prediction is accompanied by predictions of the mode and location of failure. The use of discrete failure criteria gives an abrupt appearance, with sharp corners, to many of the… CONTINUE READING
