What is buckling?  Do I have to care about it? If you start to ask these questions, you are on the right track. This webinar brings a summary of information needed to successfully evaluate buckling issues within a design of a steel joint.

Buckling, shapes, and factors

During the webinar, we will summarize the main principles of this form of structural instability called buckling. We will recap the theory about the shapes and critical load factor and bring an example with actual results. A recommendation to solve insufficient results is included. 

Hollow cross-sections and thin-walled members 

We will also tackle the hollow cross-section joints where the criteria for the ultimate limit state is the out-of-plane deformation.  

Software IDEA StatiCa Connection is dedicated to the assessment of connections of hot-rolled members. It was not validated for the design of connections of thin-walled members, which is very case-specific, but we will summarize the recommendations for them.
