Plastic Analysis and Design of Mild Steel Vierendeel Girders

This paper discusses the application of the simple plastic theory to the design of mild steel Vierendeel girders. Three modes of failure are described and equations are derived for calculating the collapse load of a girder in each of these modes. Experimental results are quoted in confirmation and the application of the analysis to the design of parallel and inclined chord girders is illustrated by calculations for the design of a five panel bridge girder.
