Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1962, Vol. 88, Issue 4, Pg. 159-190

Document Type: Journal Paper


Examination of relationships among various components of energy involved when member of rectangular section and of steel having upper and lower yield stress is bent beyond yield point; expressions are derived for applied, recoverable, dissipated, latent, and complementary energy; use of expressions to determine energy required to cause collapse of simple beam, and to examine redundancies and deformation of redundant structure in partially plastic condition.
