This study presents an Optimality Criteria method for the minimum cost design of in-situ, reinforced concrete frames, comprising of beam and column elements. The design process is governed by the Code of Practice for Structural Concrete CP110, from which details including manipulation of characteristic loading, methods of analysis and the provision of reinforcement have been obtained.
