Project: Enchancement of the ECCS design recommendations and development of Eurocode 3 parts related to shell buckling design". Project B "Local loads on cylindrical structures".
- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
- The research should solve the problem of stability and load-bearing capacity of thin walled cylindrical steel structures which are subjected to non-constant, concentrated axial stresses. The purpose of the research project is to develop simplified design recommendations, which can be introduced into the ECCS-rules and the EC3 code in order to assist designers in the steel industry.
