Buckling and lateral buckling interaction in thin-walled beam-column elements with mono-symmetric cross sections

Abstract : Effects of axial forces on beam lateral buckling strength are investigated here in the case of elements with mono-symmetric cross sections. A unique compact closed-form is established for the interaction of lateral buckling moment with axial forces. This new equation is derived from a non-linear stability model. It includes first order bending distribution, load height level and effect of mono-symmetry terms (Wagner's coefficient and shear point position). Compared to the so-called three-factors (C-1-C-3) formula commonly employed in beam lateral buckling stability, another factor C-4 is added in presence of axial loads. Pre-buckling deflection effects are considered in the study and the case of doubly-symmetric cross sections is easily recovered. The proposed solutions are validated and compared to finite element simulations where 3D beam elements including warping are used. The agreement of the proposed solutions with bifurcations observed on the non-linear equilibrium paths is good. Dimensionless interaction curves are dressed for the beam lateral buckling strength and the applied axial load, where the flexural-torsional buckling axial force is a taken as reference.
