Abstract

The elasto-plastic behavior of plain channel section beams under central point loading is investigated under static and impact loading conditions. Two different loading set-ups are considered, the first in which the load is applied to cause compression at the flange free edges and the second in which the load is applied to cause tension at the flange free edges. For each of these load set-ups static loading tests, single impact loading tests and multiple impact loading tests are carried out on a total of 86 channel beams. The energy absorption behavior of the beams tested is examined and the static and impact behavior is compared.
