A state-of-the-art review of the evaluation of the ductility of structural members and connections in view of robustness is presented in this paper, focussing on the specific contributions of the COST C12 members. Firstly, a general methodology common to all structural materials is presented for both members and connections. Next, specific aspects for the various materials are described, together with reference to available experimental, numerical and analytical work.
