Column Curvature Curve Method for Analysis of Beam-columns

Column curvature curves are used to solve general inelastic beam-column problems in a manner similar to the use of column deflexion curves. Curvature curves are obtained analytically from differential equations while rotation and deflexion are computed by numerical integration of curvature. Three cases of column curvature curves cover all possible cases of elastic-plastic beam-columns. Complete elastic-plastic responses of beam-columns are investigated. Interaction relationships between thrust and end moment for ultimate strength of a beam-column are given. Numerical results are presented for beam-columns with a wide-flange section. W.F. Chen and T.
