The purpose of this work is to perform a nonlinear analysis of plane frame struc-ture using a corotational formulation and a layered plastic modeling. The plane frame is dis-cretized with a 2D Timoshenko beam element. Plasticity is introduced by rate-independent Von-Mises model with isotropic hardening. Numerical integration over the cross-section is performed for obtain the internal force vector and tangent stiffness matrix of these elements. At each integration point, the backward-Euler algorithm is used for integration in the consti-tutive equations. Some examples are used in order to check the performances in the elements and the path-following procedures.
