THREE-DIMENSIONAL LARGE DEFORMATION ANALYSIS OF THIN WALLED BEAMS

A set of kinematic assumptions and constraints is used to develop a formulation for the analysis of thin-walled beams, of arbitrary open cross-section, subjected to arbitrarily large displacements in three-dimensional space. The validity of the formulation is illustrated through numerical solutions for elastic lateral-torsional post-buckling behavior of "I" beams, and a comparison of these solutions with experimental results.(a) /TRRL/
