Abstract

Shear behaviour of stainless steel plated girders with rigid and non-rigid end post - An experimental and numerical investigation I. Estrada, E. Real, E. Mirambell, Escola Ticnica Superior d'Enginyers de Cumins, Canals i Ports Departament d'Enginyeria de la Construccid Universitat PolitGcnica de Catalunya, Spain Abstract Resistance to shear is one of the most important load cases that has to be considered when designing steel structures. This is a widely studied item in carbon steel but not in stainless steel structures due to its recent introduction into metallic construction. Studies in this field have demonstrated that current design rules in Eurocode 3, Part 1-4 "General rules-Supplementary rules for stainless steel" for shear design leads to overly conservative results. Therefore, new design methods to determine the shear resistance in stainless steel beams should be developed. This paper aims to present an experimental and numerical investigation to study the response of stainless steel
