  • Testing

    • first tests with definitive separation of modes

    • upper and lower bound flexural capacities

    • experimental evidence for new design methods

  • FE Modeling

    • parametric studies

    • moment gradient effect

    • influence of restraint

  • Significant design impact

Generalized beam theory puneet bajpai
generalized beam theorypuneet bajpai

  • Unifies the conventional theories

  • Better understanding of structural principles

  • Economical method of analysis

  • Capability to consider individual buckling modes and select combinations of them

  • Applicable to linear analysis (First-order GBT), linear stability analysis (General second-order GBT), or bifurcation problems

Basic equation of second-order theory :

where, E = Young’s modulus, G = shear modulus,

= generalized deformation in mode k

= section properties applicable to mode k,

= distributed load applicable to mode k,

= three dimensional array of second-order terms, which includes coupling terms
