Abstract

In this paper the buckling behavior of thin-walled members with cross-sections with curved parts is investigated. Due to the curved parts, shell-like buckling is a potential mode of failure. The objective of the research is to understand whether shell-like buckling behavior might be governing in practical cold-formed steel members. For this aim, numerical studies have been carried out, involving linear buckling analysis as well as nonlinear analysis with imperfections, by considering various cross-sections. Based on the results it is concluded that shell-like behavior might be critical in certain cases.

Stability Analysis of Thin-Walled Members with Curved Cross-Section Parts: Inelastic Behavior
