The current design by analysis for protection against collapse from buckling in ASME Section VIII, Division 2, B&PV Code [8] has three different methods. However, these is no background bases for the three methods and analyst have found that the elastic plastic collapse analysis will give overly conservative results when compared with design by rule. Therefore, this study was undertaken to resolve this concern and develop a new procedure for buckling analysis to be implemented in the ASME Section VIII, Division 2, B&PV Code, Part 5.
