Design of Webplates of Steel Girders with regard to the Postbuckling Behaviour Approximate Solution
Practically all design rules for webplates of steel girders are at present based upon the conception of critical stresses. The solution assumes
(a) “Ideal webs,” that is, webs which are perfectly plane before loading, with centrally applied force, and with no residual stress developing.
(b) Very small lateral deformations compared with the web thickness. The primary and bending stresses only are considered; the effect of membrane stresses being neglected.
