Reliability of Steel Columns Subjected to Buckling—Comparison of International Standard Codes of Design

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Structural Safety and Reliability


Standard codes of design represent the phenomenon of buckling by means of a curve taking into account random structural imperfections. The author suggests a probabilistic method to evaluate and compare the homogeneity of the reliability offered by different international standard codes of design in the case of steel columns subjected to compression loads for different values of slenderness. He shows that the effects of lateral displacements due to buckling can be considered in the study of the reliability of simply compressed columns.
