Summary and Info
This book presents the design of steel structures using finite element methods (FEM)according to the current state of the art in Germany and the rest of Europe. After a short introduction on the basics of the design, this book illustrates the FEM with a focus on internal forces, displacements, critical loads and modal shapes. Next to finite element procedures for linear calculations considering the stress states of normal force, biaxial bending and warping torsion, non-linear calculations and the stability cases of flexural buckling, lateral torsional buckling and plate buckling are concentrated on significantly. In this context, design procedures for stability according to the standard Eurocode 3 is introduced and discussed. In addition, important fundamental issues are covered, such as the determination of cross-section properties as well as the elastic and plastic cross-section resistance. Complementary, finite element procedures for cross sections are dealt with, which will have an increasing importance in the future. This book has evolved within the teaching activities of the authors in the lecture Computer-oriented Design of Steel Structures on the Masters Programme Computational Engineering at the University of Bochum. It covers the total variety of demands needed to be discussed for the safe, economic and modern design of steel structures.Content: Chapter 1 Introduction (pages 1–24): Chapter 2 Cross Section Properties (pages 25–71): Chapter 3 Principles of FEM (pages 72–107): Chapter 4 FEM for Linear Calculations of Beam Structures (pages 108–167): Chapter 5 FEM for Nonlinear Calculations of Beam Structures (pages 168–216): Chapter 6 Solution of Equation Systems and Eigenvalue Problems (pages 217–244): Chapter 7 Stresses According to the Theory of Elasticity (pages 245–272): Chapter 8 Plastic Cross Section Bearing Capacity (pages 273–318): Chapter 9 Verifications for Stability and according to Second Order Theory (pages 319–419): Chapter 10 FEM for Plate Buckling (pages 420–460): Chapter 11 FEM for Cross Sections (pages 461–527):
