Design of Plated Structures Author : Darko Beg Publisher : John Wiley & Sons Total Pages : 272 Release : 2012-01-09 ISBN 10 : 9783433601150 ISBN 13 : 3433601151 Language : EN, FR, DE, ES & NL GET BOOK Design of Plated Structures Book Description: The main aim of this book is to provide practical advice to designers of plated structures for correct and efficient application of EN 1993-1-5 design rules. In chapter 1 the purpose, the scope and the structure of the book is explained. In chapter 2 a rather detailed and commented overview of EN 1993-1-5 design rules is given following the structure of the standard. Shear lag effect as well as plate buckling problems due to direct stresses, shear forces, transverse forces and interactions of these effects are covered. This chapter also includes a reduced stress method and a finite element analysis approach to plate buckling problems. A large number of design examples illustrate the proper application of individual design rules. Chapter 3 and 4 bring two complete design examples on a crane runway and a box-girder bridge.
