INFLUENCE OF LOCAL BUCKLING ON BEHAVIOUR OF TUBULAR MEMBERS

Theoretical and experimental investigations of the influence of local buckling on the behavior of tubular members are described. Based on the experimental results, a new element for use in analyses by the Idealized Structural Unit Method is developed. Using this element, some sample calculations are performed, which correlate well with the results of experiments and finite element analyses.
