NEGATIVE SHEAR LAG IN FLANGES OF PLATED STRUCTURES

It is noted that shear lag is a phenomenon that can occur at a wide variety of arrangements (plated structures, cantilever and continuous box girders, and tall buildings) with a considerable degree of significance. Negative shear lag occurs along a considerable portion of the length of such structures. The paper confirms that the shear lag depends not only on the shear-flow magnitude itself but especially on the shear-flow gradient as well, which is influenced primarily by the type of loading. No shear lag occurs if the loading shear flows acting as the edges of an unrestrained flange are of a constant magnitude. These and other findings are discussed..
