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.
