Calculation Example – Buckling of Column (EC3).

Check the column for buckling according to EC3. HEB300/S275 and axial force NEd=1000KN. The column (L=15m) is pinned at the two far ends (strong axis y-y). The column is pinned every 5m at the weak axis z-z.

Check the shear connection for the IPE450-S275 for the design shear VEd=200KN. Bolts M20-8.8, plate thickness t=10mm.

The column A moves to the right with variable speed V(t)=2*Vo*t+c. Calculate the angular velocity and the angular acceleration of the beam B. The beam is pinned at one end. (c is constant).

Calculate the stiffness matrix for the frame structure. It is assumed that the members do not distort axially. The frame has three joint degrees of freedom. At end A, B is rigidly fixed to the ground.
