Plastic Analysis and Design of Steel Structures Book (PDF) by M. Bill Wong – Free Download


Plastic Analysis and Design of Steel Structures written by M Bill Wong,
Department of Civil Engineering Monash University, Australia is published by
Butterworth–Heinemann publications.
The plastic method has been used extensively by engineers for the design
of steel structures, including simple beams, continuous beams, and simple
portal frames. Traditionally, the analysis is based on the rigid-plastic theory
whereby the plastic collapse load is evaluated through virtual work formulation
in which elastic deflection is ignored. For more complex frames, specialist
computer packages for elastoplastic analysis are usually employed. Current
publications on plastic design method provide means of analysis based on either
virtual work formulation or sophisticated plastic theory contained in
specialist computer packages. This book aims to bridge this gap.
The advent
of computers has enabled practicing engineers to perform linear and nonlinear
elastic analysis on a daily basis using computer programs widely available
commercially. The results from computer analysis are transferred routinely to
tools with automated calculation formats such as spreadsheets for design. The
use of this routine procedure is commonplace for design based on elastic, geometrically
nonlinear analysis. However, commercially available computer programs for
plastic analysis are still a rarity among the engineering community.
This book
emphasizes a plastic analysis method based on the hinge by hinge concept.
Frames of any degree of complexity can be analyzed plastically using this
method. This method is based on the elastoplastic analysis procedure where a
linear elastic analysis, performed either manually or by computers, is used
between the formation of consecutive plastic hinges. The results of the linear
elastic analysis are used in a proforma created in a spreadsheet environment
where the next plastic hinge formation can be predicted automatically and the
corresponding culmulative forces and deflections calculated. In addition, a
successive approximation method is described to take account of the effect of
force interaction on the evaluation of the collapse load of a structure. This
method can be performed using results from analysis obtained from most
commercially available computer programs. The successive approximation method
is an indirect way to obtain the collapse load of structures using iterative
procedures. Fordirect calculation of the collapse load without using iterative
procedures, special formulations, possibly with ad-hoc computer programming,
according to the plastic theory must be used. Nowadays, the stiffness method is
the most popular and recognized method for structural analysis.
This book
provides a theoretical treatment for derivation of the stiffness matrices for
different states of plasticity in an element for the stiffness method of
analysis. The theory is based on the plastic flow rule and the concept of yield
surface is introduced. An introduction to the use of the linear programming
technique for plastic analysis is provided in a single chapter in this book.
This powerful and advanced method for plastic analysis is described in detail
using optimization procedures. Its use is important in an automated
computational environment and is particularly important for researchers working
in the area of nonlinear structural plastic analysis. This chapter was written
by Professor Francis Tin-Loi, a prominent researcher in the use of mathematical
programming methods for plastic analysis of structures. In this book, new
insights into various issues related to plastic analysis and design are given,
such as the effect of high temperature on plastic collapse load and the use of
plastic rotation capacity as a limit state for plastic design. Based on the
elastoplastic approach, an interpolation procedure is introduced to calculate
the design forces and deflections at the design load level rather than at the
collapse load level. In the final chapter of this book, a comparison among
design codes from Australia, Europe, and the United States for plastic design
method is given. This comparison enables practicing engineers to understand the
issues involved in the plastic design procedures and the limitations imposed by
this design method.
