Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

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.
