Elements subject to compression that meet the limits for class 3 given in Table 5. It is necessary to make explicit allowance for the effects of local buckling. Class 4 slender: Cross-sections in which local buckling will occur before attainment of yield stress in one or more parts of the cross section.Moment rotation behaviour • The following classification should be applied.2 should be classified as class 3 semi-compact. Elements subject to compression that do not meet the limits for class 3 semi-compact given in Table 5. Class 2 compact: Cross-sections which can develop their plastic moment resistance. Class 3 semi-compact: Cross-sections in which the stress at the extreme compression fibre can reach the yield strength.2 should be classified as class 4 slender. but the plastic moment capacity cannot be developed due to local buckling. Elements subject to compression that meet the limits for class 1 given in Table 5. Class 1 cross sections: Cross-sections which can form a plastic hinge with rotation capacity required for plastic analysis. Design of steel structures 22 . but have limited rotation capacity because of local buckling.2 should be classified as class 2 compact.

Descriptions • • • • Slender section: When aspect ratio is relatively high. then local buckling may prevent any part of the cross section from reaching the design strength (Py). Such sections are called slender sections or class 4. their reduced capacity is based on effective cross section properties. Semi compact section or class 3: Semi compact sections may be prevented from reaching their full plastic moment capacity by local buckling of one or more elements of the cross section. The aspect ratio may be such that only the extreme fibre stress can attain the design strength before local buckling occurs. Compact section or class 2: Sections which have full plastic moment capacity but not sufficient hinge rotation capacity Plastic section or class 1: sections which have full plastic moment and hinge rotation capacity Design of steel structures 25 . Such sections are classified as Class 3 and their capacity is therefore based on the limiting elastic moment as shown in figure b above.
