The direct determination of limit states of materials and structures under general thermomechanical loading is of utmost interest for any design engineer. Such methods have existed for many years, but have found only limited practical application. Owing to new theoretical and numerical developments, this situation has changed and the methodology has reached a level of maturity that makes it attractive for a large range of applications.
