Material, geometrical and connection non-linearities could have a significant influence on the forces and moments in a steel structure, especially at ultimate load levels.

Structural steel design codes require the consideration of second-order moments and reduction of mechanical properties for slender cross section where local bucking is likely to occur. Geometric nonlinearity is important for investigating the real load-carrying capacity of the structure and the ultimate strength and safety factors of steel structures that fail by compression, axial-torsional and flexural-torsional buckling and local bucking of girder webs. Also the geometric and material nonlinear analysis is important to optimize stiffeners and demonstrate post-buckling stiffness.

Moreover, Structural steel design codes also allow plastic hinge formation if steel members are able to redistribute moments. Therefore, it makes economic sense to perform a plastic design to take this moment transfer into account and thus make the structure more economical.

This webinar includes the linear and non-linear analysis of steel structures, calculation of load-carrying capacity, global structural buckling or local bucking of girder web and safety according to Structural Steel Design Codes.
