U-Frame action design according to Eurocodes
Abstract and Figures
Ricardo Pimentel of the SCI discusses the consideration of U‐Frame action to restrain members susceptible to flexural and lateral torsional buckling according to Eurocodes. Buckling phenomena frequently govern the design of steel members under compression or for elements partially compressed. To achieve a good compromise between steel tonnage and performance, discrete restraints along the compressed member (or along the compressed part of the member) can be used. However, for certain cases, introducing restraints as part of an orthodox bracing system is not feasible and designers must use other options to achieve a capable structural solution. The use of U-frame action offers this opportunity. https://www.newsteelconstruction.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/NSCJan2021tech.pdf
