Elastic-plastic buckling of infinitely long plates resting on tensionless foundations

Yang, Yongchang, 1965- January 2007 (has links)
There is a class of plate buckling problems in which buckling occurs in the presence of a constraining medium. This type of buckling has been investigated by many researchers, mainly as buckling of elastic columns and plates on elastic foundations. Analytical solutions have been obtained by assuming the foundation to provide tensile as well as compressive reaction forces. The present work differs from the previous ones in two respects. One, the foundation is assumed to be one-sided, thus providing only the compressive resistance. Two, the plates are allowed to be stressed in the plastic, strain-hardening range. Equations for determining the buckling stresses and wavelengths are obtained by solving the differential equations for simply supported and clamped long rectangular plates stressed uniformly in the longitudinal direction. The relevance and the usefulness of the obtained formulas is demonstrated by comparing the predicted results with the experimental results of other researchers on buckling of concrete filled steel box-section and HSS columns. It is shown that the theoretical buckling loads match quite closely with the experimental ones, and hence, should prove useful in formulating rules for the design of such columns.

Buckling of a ring in an elastic foundation

Choukalos, William January 1964 (has links)
This thesis derives the differential equation for the in plane extentionless buckling of a ring in an elastic foundation. The elastic foundation can exert forces proportional to radial and tangential displacements and a couple proportional to rotation. The external uniform load is always directed toward a fixed point on the initial radius. A special case of this is hydrostatic pressure where the load remains normal to the ring. In other cases the load may remain parallel to the initial radius or remain directed towards the initial centre. Complete solutions are presented for a full ring and several graphs of critical pressure versus foundation stiffness indicating the general behaviour. A full solution is given for a partial ring with hinged supports along with a number of graphs. A method is presented but no solutions are given for a partial ring with fixed supports. Finally, a solution is given for the case of a full ring under hydrostatic load with radial elastic supports having a different spring constant for inward and outward displacements. This solution, presented graphically for all combination of spring constants, can represent the buckling of a culvert under a high fill. / Applied Science, Faculty of / Civil Engineering, Department of / Graduate

The lateral-torsional buckling of doubly symmetric wide flange sections

De Vall, Ronald H. January 1968 (has links)
In this thesis, a stiffness matrix which includes the non-linear effects of principal plane shears, moments and axial loads on lateral and torsional deflections is developed for a doubly symmetric wide flange section. Initially, an exact eight by eight linear matrix is developed for an element of constant section properties. The eight allowable deflections allows the independent representation of the deflections of either flange at either end. The non-linear effects are included in the differential equations by considering the effect of the primary stresses on the equilibrium of a dis-placed element. Two approximations are then introduced. The first consists of a numerical technique for solving the differential equations. The second consists of a simplification of the boundary conditions in solving the differential equations. Using these two approximations, the non-linear portion of the matrix is then built. Several structures are then analyzed. Each structure is divided into several elements. This allows beams of non-constant section properties to be analyzed, and increases the accuracy of the results of the approximate matrices. The results of these analyses are then compared to theoretical results and tabulated. It is seen that the matrix gives good agreement for all cases tested. / Applied Science, Faculty of / Civil Engineering, Department of / Graduate
