How can we determine the sensitivity of a steel frame to second-order effects to Eurocode?
Posted on in MasterFrame
According to Eurocode 3, if the deformed geometry significantly modifies the structural behaviour we have to take into account the influence of the deformation in the analysis. But how can we determine that our structure is sensitive for deformation or not and if it is how can we take into account during the analysis?
Buckling design of steel columns to Eurocode 3
Posted on in MasterFrame
For a compression member, especially if it is a slender steel element, the stability check is the most crucial design situation. In this article, we will show you how to design a steel column with axial compression to Eurocode 1993-1-1.
