Nearly all plate girders built today are welded. Two flange plates fillet welded to a web plate to form an I-section. But how to design the welds between the flange and web of a plate girder?
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?
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.
