Using a direct one dimensional beam model with an internal structure including a kinematical descriptor which accounts for gross warping, the analysis of an L frame made up of thin walled beams is performed up to the initial postbuckling range.

Abstract

Using a direct one dimensional beam model with an internal structure including a kinematical descriptor which accounts for gross warping, the analysis of an L frame made up of thin walled beams is performed up to the initial postbuckling range. The beams have cross sections with only one axis of symmetry but the frame is symmetric and symmetrically loaded. Numerical results have been obtained by means of the finite element method using the COMSOL Multiphysics software. The results show that, despite the geometric and dynamic symmetry of the frame and depending on the transmission of warping between the beams, the frame can be imperfection sensitive.
