This article explains a method for determining how semi‐continuous joints influence the deflection, natural frequency and bending moment distribution of single‐span beams with constant inertia under uniformly distributed load. The method is adequate for simple hand calculations, allowing the...
This article reviews prior research on connections between through‐plates and circular hollow sections (CHS) and presents a finite element (FE) study validated against laboratory experiments. The FE analysis indicates that, for a given geometric configuration, the behaviour of...
In many practical applications, columns are often fixed to a practically rigid concrete structure at the column base. This additional restraint should increase the real load‐carrying capacity if the section is susceptible to lateral‐torsional buckling. However, this effect is rarely taken into...
Underpressure in a tank with a fixed roof may arise in the final stage of its construction as well as during its usage. After completing the construction, when the tank is empty and all manholes and valves, through which air could get into the tank, are tightly closed, underpressure may arise in...
During high wind or earthquake action, high‐rise multi‐storey buildings respond with relatively large storey drifts. The building envelope, in this case a curtain wall, exposed to this in‐plane shear resists the action with its drift capacity. This paper describes tests on two different...
