Those volumes of lawsuits include 9 invited keynote papers and a hundred thirty contributed papers provided on the 3rd foreign convention on Advances in metal buildings (ICASS '02) hung on 11th of September December 2002 in Hong Kong, China. The convention is a sequel to the 1st and the second one overseas meetings on Advances in metal buildings held in Hong Kong in December 1996 and 1999.

The convention offers a discussion board for dialogue and dissemination via researchers and architects of contemporary advances within the research, behaviour, layout and building of metal buildings. Papers have been contributed from over 18 nations around the globe. They document present state-of-the artwork and aspect to destiny instructions of structural metal learn, protecting a large spectrum of themes together with: beams and columns; connections; scaffolds and slim buildings; cold-formed metal; composite development; plates; shells; bridges; dynamics; impression mechanics; results of welding; fatigue and fracture; hearth functionality; and research and layout.

Example text

ABSTRACT An analytical elastic distortional buckling theory is formulated to investigate the elastic structural behaviour of I sections with very slender webs where cross section distortion in terms of local buckling of the web-plate and overall distortional buckling of the I sections are fully incorporated. Through a standard eigenvalue analysis, the elastic critical moments of these sections are obtained, and comparison with finite strip results are also presented. Moreover, an extensive parametric study on I sections with practical ranges of geometrical dimensions is also reported to assess the importance of distortional buckling for I sections susceptible to lateral torsional buckling.

In summary, stainless steel plates can be accurately modelled by using nonlinear strain hardening material models which are based on compression coupon tests for the longitudinal direction. The present study indicates that anisotropy may not be important for numerical analyses.

Their effects are indirectly incorporated within the geometric imperfections. 1 E , and n is the knee factor that defines the sharpness of the stress-strain curve. The knee factor « = 25 is used here to account for the isotropic strain hardening of steel plates. Shear-slip behaviour of headed stud shear connectors The shear connection affects the strength of steel plates in DSC panels. The local buckling of slender steel plates may occur before the failure of stud shear connectors. The shear connection may fail before the onset of the local buckling or yielding of stocky plates.
