The In-plane Failure of Steel Beam Columns

A new analytical method of determining the maximum strength of steel beam-columns is given. In-plane failure under uniaxial moment loading is investigated and full account is taken of imperfections such as residual stresses and initial curvature. Good correlation with existing experimental results is established. A novel form of design presentation is derived which permits all four beam-column parameters to appear on a single chart. The important concept of the stocky column is introduced. These are members which can be designed for full plasticity without the need to investigate stability effects. B.W. Young
