>Do I design all my concrete buildings using allowable stresses then?
As near as I can tell from the little I know about concrete, it's just 
like LRFD. You base the design on what amounts to elastic assumptions 
with appropriately buggered stress levels (or stress levels converted to 
equivalent loads, which you can only do with linear response). Then you 
change some terminology, call it limit analysis and pretend you're doing 
something new and techy.
