The last two chapters have been concerned with analysis, that is, solving problems where the basic geometry of the structure (length of beams and column heights) and the size of the members is given. This would be the situation when an existing structure is checked for resistance to collapse. More frequently the problem is to find the size of the members, given the loading (or loadings) and the basic geometry, such that the structure has a required load factor against collapse. The sizing of the members is a design problem.
