  • The Mechanics of Built-Up Cold-Formed Steel Members (No. R965) 

    Rasmussen, Kim J.R.; Khezri, Mani; Schafer, Benjamin W.; Zhang, Hao
    Published 2019-01-01
    The paper presents methods of analysis of built-up sections in which the discrete locations of fasteners is accounted for explicitly, rather than by smearing their effect using continuous shear flexibility as in current ...

  • Limit States Design of Crane Runway Girders: Research Report R967 

    Trahair, Nicholas S.
    Published 2021
    Steel crane runway girders are subjected to torsion by their eccentric loads. The twist rotation of the principal axes caused by torsion induces additional bending moments, and reduces the resistance to lateral buckling. ...

  • The Shift of the Effective Centroid in Plain Channel Section Columns (No. R966) 

    Arrayago, Itsaso; Rasmussen, Kim J.R.
    Published 2020-01-01
    The report derives an equation for the shift of the effective centroid that occurs in plain channel section columns as a result of local buckling. The shift causes bending when the column is compressed between pinned ends ...

  • Approximate Analysis of Non-Uniform Torsion (No. R968) 

    Trahair, Nicholas S.
    Published 2021
    It is difficult to obtain closed form exact solutions for the non-uniform torsion of beams. Advanced finite element methods easily produce very accurate solutions, but simple programs are not widely available. One simple ...
