Column curvature curves are used to solve general inelastic beam-column problems in a manner similar to the use of column deflection curves. Curvature curves are obtained analytically from differential equations while rotation and reflection are computed by numerical integration of curvature. Complete elastic-plastic responses of beam-columns are investigated.
