Keywords: intraction diagram, analytical approach, general section.
The paper presents a new generalized definition of classic intraction diagrams and provides a simple analytical approach to the problem. It is shown that the failure criteria for uncracked composite sections, even with nonregular shapes, under biaxial bending and normal forces can analytically be found. The study uses very simple and flexible theory that is developed by the authors in this paper and article.
