The Ultimate Load Behaviour of Plate Girders Loaded in Shear

The paper presents a plastic method of design for plate girder webs which allows for the influence of flange rigidity upon the post buckled behaviour of webs. The design procedure which is based on a study of the behaviour of 40 plate girders tested by the authors, has been checked against other experimental data available in the technical press. Because the present design procedure allows for the influence of flange stiffness upon the post buckled behaviour of shear webs it is more accurate than existing design methods. K.C. Rockey and M. Skaloud
