Introduction

fail by buckling in a more

Lateral buckling

Lateral buckling is the most influential strength limit

state in the design of steel beams.

Lateral buckling is also called flexural-torsional buckling

(or member buckling) and involves the lateral or sideways

instability of long slender beams.

Beams with FULL LATERAL RESTRAINT do not buckle

laterally and their strength is the

CROSS-SECTION STRENGTH defined by:

Most commonly beams do not have full lateral restraint and the

The elastic buckling resistance depends on the

Iw = warping constant (mm6)

N.B. this is the ELASTIC BUCKLING MOMENT and not the actual

BUCKLING STRENGTH Mb which also depends on the yield stress fy.

Mb will be determined later.

Of course beams in reality are rarely loaded in uniform bending,

nor are they pin-ended (or simply supported) so the formula for

Mo needs some modification.

This is very conservative as the elastic buckling moment

(Mo) is increased by unequal moments, transverse loads etc.

it becomes non-linear near its in-plane ultimate load because of yielding and

buckling effects.

When the axial compression forces are small, failure occurs when a sufficient

number of plastic hinges have developed to cause the frame to form a collapse

mechanism, in which case the load capacity of the frame can be determined by

driven rivets were extensively used in structural

connections. They were often used in the same way as ordinary

structural bolts are used in shear and bearing and in tension

connections.

There is usually less slip in a riveted connection because of the tendency

for the rivet holes to be filled by the rivets when being hot-driven.

Shop riveting was cheaper than filed riveting, and for this reason shop

riveting was often combined with field bolting.

from the face of the column. In designing the bolts, the beam

reaction is assumed to act at the line of the weld at a distance of

Welds

Structural connections between steel members are often made by arc

arc-welding

welding

techniques, in which molten weld metal is fused with the parent metal of the

members or joint plates being connected.

Welding is often cheaper than bolting because of the great reduction in the

preparation

p

p

required,

q

, while ggreater strength

g can be achieved,, the members or

plates no longer being weakened by bolt holes, and the strength of the weld

metal being superior to that of the material connected.

In addition, welds are more rigid than other types of load-transferring

connectors.

On the other hand, welding often produces distortion and high local residual

stresses,

Example 3

longitudinal design shear per unit length of vwL* = 1.0kN/mm and

transverse design shears per unit length of vwx* = 0.6kN/mm

0 6kN/mm and

vwy* = 0.4 kN/mm. Check the adequacy of the weld.

This problem illustrates the checking of a fillet weld under combined loadings.
