# Cold-Formed Z-Sections Under Axial Load and Bending

*The use of cold-formed Z-section members as beam-columns presents some unique design problems which are not adequately addressed in the current design specifications. If these members...*

Stability Analysis in Bracing and Support Design

*A post-buckling stability analysis is carried out for struts with multiple elastic lateral supports. Both hinged-end and fixed-end conditions are considered. A criterion of sufficient...*

Lateral Buckling of Beams: General Considerations

*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...*

Optimal Shape Design of Columns for Buckling

*A procedure for the shape optimization of a column for prescribed buckling load is developed. The procedure uses a new analysis technique that enables the formulation of the optimization...*

Buckling of Tapered Columns by P-Version of F.E.M.

*The local, distortional, overall, and interactive buckling of tapered, thin-walled members under axial compression and flexure are considered by using three-dimensional models based on...*

Long-Term Buckling of Composite Columns

*A consistent theoretical study of the creep buckling behaviour of viscoelastic laminated columns is presented. The problem is treated by means of the quasi-elastic method. The analysis...*

Discrete Field Stability Analysis of Latticed Towers

*The design of latticed towers is often controlled by the stability of the overall system as opposed to local member buckling. The purpose of this paper is to develop an elastic stability...*

Dynamic Characterization of Posttensioned Rods in Stressed Timber Systems

*A new approach is presented to monitor the levels of force in posttensioning rods in stressed timber systems. The dynamic response of the rod under an impact load is characterized and...*

Buckling Criteria for Earthquake-Induced Overturning Stresses in Cylindrical Liquid Storage Tanks

*Perhaps one of the most common forms of seismic damage to cylindrical liquid storage tanks made out of steel is buckling of the tank wall due to vertical overturning stresses. Buckling...*

Unbonded Performance

*Unbonded single strand tendons have been used in the U.S. for about 30 years. In a small number of buildings, strand corrosion failures have occurred. Although it is clear that post-tensioning...*

Pipeline Curvature by Polynomial Approximation

*Since start-up of the trans-Alaska pipeline in June of 1977, a variety of techniques have been investigated to monitor pipe settlement and evaluate associated pipe integrity. During the...*

A Simple Microcomputer Finite Strip Analysis

*The development of a finite strip analysis of thin-walled section buckling behaviour is outlined. The analysis uses plate theory for out of plane deflection behaviour and beam theory for...*

Recent Developments of the Finite Strip Method

*The finite strip method is approaching a state of maturity as a structural analysis technique, as the well known finite element method has done. Two comprehensive (although somewhat dated)...*

Optimum Cut-Outs on Plate Stability

*Cut-outs are unavoidable in some of the plate components. To minimize the plate weight, in the meantime, to maintain the critical buckling load as high as possible is one of the major...*

Local Buckling and Cyclic Behavior of Tubular Members

*The effect of the local buckling is included in the cyclic analysis of tubular members. The cyclic moment-curvature curves are obtained numerically. Three types of closed form expressions...*

Cyclic Behavior of Concrete-Filled Tubes

*This paper presents the results of tests on hollow and concrete-filled rectangular tubes subjected to cyclic bending and buckling. It is shown that concrete infill greatly improves the...*

Stability and Limit Loads of Steel Space Trusses

*An investigation of the behavior of cold-formed steel space truss structures, under the interaction of local, member, and overall buckling is described. A Finite Element computer program...*

Bending Strength of Thin Cold-Formed Steel Straight Panels

*An experimental investigation on the bending strength of 26 gage cold-formed corrugated steel straight panels with web-depth to thickness (h/t) ratio of 475 is presented. A typical test...*

Circular Tubes and Shells 4th Edition of SSRC Guide

*The 3rd edition of the Guide was the first to have a chapter devoted to Cylindrical Tubes and Shells. Chapter 14 in the 4th edition is a major revision of Chapter 10 in the previous edition....*

Restoration of Navy LTA (Lighter Than Air) Hangars

*In 1942 and 1943 the Government constructed a series of 16 blimp hangars at ten Naval Air Stations along the east coast, west coast and gulf coast. The hangars erected in pairs housed...*
