The following application allows determining the movements, forces, and load-carrying capacity of compressed and flexural elements along the strong, weak, and torsional axes with a double T-section, susceptible to lateral-torsional buckling. To achieve this, the magnitudes of equivalent imperfections are obtained, and the imperfect structure is analyzed in-plane and out-of-plane.
To determine the forces and movements present in perfect and imperfect structures with linear and non-linear behavior and to determine the strength of the sections used. The analysis is conducted in-plane and out-of-plane, considering imperfections in both cases.
Select the section shape, dimensions, materials, loads, and boundary conditions within and outside the plane. The results include various graphs illustrating the forces and movements of the perfect and imperfect structure (in-plane and out-of-plane) in linear and nonlinear calculations, as well as the proximity of the sections to their ultimate strength.
With the following tools, elastic and plastic design is facilitated both in-plane and out-of-plane for slender steel structures with Class 1, 2 plastic behavior, or 3 elastic behavior susceptible to experiencing compression, bending, or flexural compression buckling. This includes imperfections in-plane and out-of-plane.
