Abstract

In this paper flexural buckling of thin-walled members with holes are discussed. Members with few but large openings, as well as with slotted webs are studied. Large number of finite element analyses has been performed, by using a carefully constrained shell finite element model in order to exclude the distortion of the cross-section, which makes it possible to analyze flexural buckling separately from other modes. Based on the results general conclusions are drawn regarding the global behavior of members with holes. Moreover, analytical models are developed for column members with slotted webs, with neglecting or with considering the effect of shear deformations. The proposed analytical models are the adaptation of the shell-theory-based analytical models proposed by the authors earlier.

Understanding the Global Buckling Behavior of Thin-Walled Members with Slotted Web

In this paper flexural buckling of thin-walled members with holes are discussed. Members with few but large openings, as well as with slotted webs are studied. Large number of finite element analyses has been performed, by using a carefully constrained shell finite element model in order to exclude the distortion of the cross-section, which makes it possible to analyze flexural buckling separately from other modes. Based on the results general conclusions are drawn regarding the global behavior of members with holes. Moreover, analytical models are developed for column members with slotted webs, with neglecting or with considering the effect of shear deformations. The proposed analytical models are the adaptation of the shell-theory-based analytical models proposed by the authors earlier.
