Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

Examines the behaviour of cold-formed stainless steel stub columns where the material follows a Ramberg-Osgood stress-strain law. The stub column length is varied to examine the effects on the failure capacity when the stub columns are subjected to varying magnitudes of combined bending and axial compression loading. The paper follows the work reported by the same authors in 2003 [Macdonald, M, Rhodes J. and Kotelko M. Behaviour of stainless steel columns under combined bending and axial compression loading.
