Using the equivalent uniform moment approach that has previously been adopfed for unrestrained columns, an elastic design method is presented for columns laterally restrained at intervals along one flange and subjected to axial thrust in the presence of unequal terminal moments about the major axis. The criterion used is the attainment of yield stress, allowance being made for imperfections in the columns. The analysis is then modified to allow for the formation of a plastic hinge (bending about the major axis) at one end or, in the case of equal double curvature bending, of plastic hinges at both ends, such loading conditions being of importance in the plastic design of portal frames.

Torsional Behaviour of Structural Rectangular Hollow Sections

Torsional Behaviour of Structural Rectangular Hollow Sections

This paper presents a basis for determining displacements and stresses arising from the torsion of structural rectangular hollow sections. Particular attention is given to stress concentrations at the re-entrant corners. A relationship is determined between freely formed corner radii and section thickness. Analytical solutions are compared with experimental results on steel sections and prediction from thin walled torsion theory. J. Marshall

The Post-buckling Behaviour of Laterally Restrained Columns

The Post-buckling Behaviour of Laterally Restrained Columns

The elastic plastic post-buckling behaviour of a column, laterally restrained near one flange and subjected to a uniform major axis bending moment, is investigated, using the concept of a complex plastic hinge situated at mid-height. By considering also the elastic response curve in the presence of initial imperfections, an upper bound to the complete elastic-plastic load deformation relationship is derived. It is shown how this analysis may be used to derive suitable slenderness ratio limits in plastic design procedures for frames containing such members. M.R. Horne and J.L. Ajmani
