Columns under combined bending and thrust Fokschaner, Walter


A method is developed for construction of deflection curves of beam-columns stressed into plastic range by thrusts and equal end moments producing single curvature bending. Actual deflection curves are plotted for 8x8 WF 31 lb/ft section acted upon by moments and thrusts of different magnitudes. These are used for construction of the end moment vs. end slope diagrams and the interaction curves which present in graphical form the ultimate strength of beam-columns of different lengths under various combinations of thrusts and moments. The latter are compared with similar graphs contained in current specifications. The study is based on moment vs. curvature relations developed at Lehigh University.
