## Web bearing and buckling

Web bearing failure means that the web yields at the its most vulnerable location, close to the root radius at the junction of the web and flange where the force is concentrated. Buckling happens when the web behaves like a slender column and buckles. buckles At both ends of the web as a column, column it is assumed that the web is adequately restrained by the flange to which it is connected in the lateral direction, and therefore, the web can neither rotate nor move laterally.

## Resistance to Transverse Force

EC1993-1-5 distinguishes between two types of forces applied through a flange on to the web: i) forces resisted by shear in the web [load types (a) and (c)] ii) forces transferred through the web directly to the other flange [load type (b)].

Web Failure
