Use of Braced Strut Behaviour to Assess BS 5400 Provisions for Beam Restraint

Bracing of compression flanges is a means of preventing instability of steel beams. Recent experience in the design and construction of steel bridges revealed contention relating to the application of the relevant BS 5400 provisions. This paper assesses these provisions, using the simplified behaviour of braced struts, and offers suggested modifications. E. Jeffers
