Much thanks for you opinion.

Answer
Dear Telmo

I suggest you to follow this subject:

Simplification and categorization of data gathered in  Plastic analysis of slabs. In this method you should use plastic hinges to predict the collapse mechanism of slabs. The energy method is the key of your investigations. This method is not new at all but the classification of data to make  this method simple to use for engineer may be your work to do.
