Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

Finite element analysis of web crippling behaviour of cold-formed steel flexural members

Macdonald, Martin and Heiyantuduwa, M.A. and Rhodes, James (2006) Finite element analysis of web crippling behaviour of cold-formed steel flexural members. In: Proceedings of the 18th International Speciality Conference on Cold Formed Steel Structures. University of Missouri-Rolla.

The resistance of cold-formed thin-walled steel cassettes against local transverse forces, i.e. the web crippling capacity, was investigated both experimentally and numerically using finite element analysis. Both unreinforced (flat) cassette webs and webs with longitudinal stiffeners situated on only one side of the web mid-line were studied. The calculation of the web crippling capacity of this type of stiffened webs is not included in current design codes.
