Title: Message
Did anyone read the "Designing for horizontal movement" article in the Dec '08 issue of Structural Engineer magazine?  The phrase "again reach full plastification" raised a flag for me.  Are these columns intended to work by exceeding there elastic stress, and doing it more than once?  Am I missing something?
