Title:Inelastic design of load carrying members part 4; behavior of beam columns in inelastic range
Author(s):Muvdi, B.B.; Sidebottom, O.M.
Subject(s):Inelastic Design
Load Carrying
Abstract:Two theories were presented for constructing either moment-load or load-deflection relations as well as the collapse loads for beam-columns. In each case, trial and error solutions were required which used constant depth of yielding interaction curves. A “so called” exact theory was presented which gave results as accurate as desired; however, the theory was not practical because of the excessive time required. An approximate theory was presented which gave results in close agreement with the exact theory and with experimental data. This theory required the elastic solution for maximum elastic conditions. The experimental part of the investigation included tests of rectangular – and T-section columns made of 2024-T4 aluminum alloy, SAE 1020 steel, and 17-7PH stainless steel. Several slenderness ratios were considered. In addition to the variable axial load, the columns were subjected to a constant transverse load either at midspan of at quarter span which produced a bending stress of 0.25, 0.50, or 0.75 σ_e.
