Ultimate Load Behaviour of Webs Subject to Patch Loading and Interaction between Shear Lag and Plate Buckling in Longitudinally Stiffened Compression Flanges

  • M. Skaloud
Part of the CISM International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 323)


This part of the monograph, corresponding to seven hours of lecturing at the related International Advanced School, deals with two chapters on advanced analysis of steel plate and box girders; viz. (i) the behaviour of the slender webs of steel plate girders subject to partial edge loading and (ii) the interaction that exists between shear lag and plate buckling in the longitudinally stiffened compression flanges of steel box girder bridges and similar structures. Both chapters are mostly based on the results and conclusions of the research undertaken by the author and his associates in Prague during the last years, or (see one section of Chapter 2) in close cooperation with Prof. Maquoi’s team at Liège University in Belgium.
