Abstract

This paper describes the results obtained from a finite element investigation into the column capacity of Type 304 stainless steel column members of lipped channel cross-section. Stress-strain curves derived from tests were incorporated into non-linear finite element analyses of eccentrically loaded stainless steel columns. The results obtained are compared with test results on stainless steel channel columns with the same properties and dimensions, and also with design code predictions.

Finite Element Modelling of Stainless Steel Columns with Variation in Mechanical Properties

This paper describes the results obtained from a finite element investigation into the column capacity of Type 304 stainless steel column members of lipped channel cross-section. Stress-strain curves derived from tests were incorporated into non-linear finite element analyses of eccentrically loaded stainless steel columns. The results obtained are compared with test results on stainless steel channel columns with the same properties and dimensions, and also with design code predictions.
