Abstract

The instability of partially stiffened stainless steel compression members due to local buckling of the flange element or flange and lip interaction has not been studied before. In this investigation the critical local buckling and post-buckling behaviour of cold-formed partially stiffened stainless steel compression elements is studied. It is concluded in this investigation that a plasticity reduction factor should be used to evaluate the critical local buckling stress as well as the effective width to calculate the ultimate capacity of partially stiffened stainless steel compression members.

The Strength of Partially Stiffened Stainless Steel Compression Members

Saint Louis, Missouri

The instability of partially stiffened stainless steel compression members due to local buckling of the flange element or flange and lip interaction has not been studied before. In this investigation the critical local buckling and post-buckling behaviour of cold-formed partially stiffened stainless steel compression elements is studied. It is concluded in this investigation that a plasticity reduction factor should be used to evaluate the critical local buckling stress as well as the effective width to calculate the ultimate capacity of partially stiffened stainless steel compression members.
