Welded Steel Plates in Compression

The paper reviews the current effective width treatments in BS 153 and BS 449 for plates in compression, and compares them with recent research results. Interaction between local buckling and overall column buckling is considered. New design rules are tentatively suggested. Particular reference is made to the effect of residual stresses caused by welding, and an approximate method is presented for relating residual stress to size of weld. J.B. Dwight and K.E. Moxham
