Finite Element Investigation on Web-Post Buckling of Perforated Steel Beams with Various Web Opening Shapes subjected under different shear-moment interaction

Tsavdaridis, K. D. and D'Mello, C. (2011). Finite Element Investigation on Web-Post Buckling of Perforated Steel Beams with Various Web Opening Shapes subjected under different shear-moment interaction. Paper presented at the 6th European Conference on Steel and Composite Structures, 31-08-2011 - 02-09-2011, Budapest, Hungary.

Abstract

The current method of assessment is based on FE models which still lack computational efficiency and are restricted by a number of limitations. Therefore, this work aims at the feasibility of developing FE models which are applicable to deformation and strength prediction of full scale perforated steel beams. The main area of interest is the stability of the web-post under the combined effect of shear and compression, especially at the edge of the web openings, where the stabilizing effect of tension field action is less than that at the centre of the web-post.
