Lateral Buckling of Beams: General Considerations

by Mahesh D. Pandey, Univ of Waterloo, Canada,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Steel Structures


The paper presents a solution for the elastic, lateral-torsional buckling of beams under unequal end moments using Worthington's method of superposition of modes involving uniform and non uniform torsion. It is seen to provide more accurate results in comparison with existing methods as used in design codes.
