The Equivalent Column Concept in Stability Analysis of Buildings

A new approach to dealing with global buckling of structures has been introduced, based on the concept equivalent column. In this paper the theoretical basis equivalent column is discussed, and the treatment complex behaviour; including torsion of bracing elements non-rectangular plan layouts, is described. K.A.
