Serial Information: Journal of the Engineering Mechanics Division, 1957, Vol. 83, Issue 4, Pg. 1-23

Document Type: Journal Paper


Response to lateral loads and twisting couples is affected by presence of bending moments in plane of major stiffness; resulting nonlinear theory discussed; inclusion of nonlinear terms in strain displacement relations corresponds generally to stiffening of structure as compared with familiar linear theory; theory presented is corroborated experimentally with fair degree of accuracy.
