Abstract:

The report contains a description of 42 beam-column experiments conducted to study the strength and deformation characteristics of as-rolled wideflange columns subjected to axial force and bending moments about the strong axis. The effects of axial force, length, member size, lateral bracing, and loading conditions are studied. The scope of the tests, the test setup, and the experimental procedures are described. The effects of the variations of the various parameters are discussed. Finally, the results are compared with various theories and with empirical interaction curves. Author
