LOCAL BUCKLING OF FIBER REINFORCED PLASTIC COMPOSITE STRUCTURAL MEMBERS WITH OPEN AND CLOSED CROSS SECTIONS

Local buckling analysis of fiber reinforced plastic composite open and closed thin-walled section beams and columns is presented. Explicit expressions are developed for axially loaded and for bent box-, I-, C-, Z-, and L-members. These simple, explicit formulas contain the width and the bending stiffnesses of each wall segment. The utility of the method is demonstrated by numerical examples.
