5 Lateral torsional buckling of a cantilever A numerical quantity which is useful in interpreting lateral instability data is the equivalent slenderness, λLT, in the expression Rearranging The advantage of using λLT for determining lateral buckling strength is that all the relevant properties of the material (E and G) and cross-section (Iy, H, J, and L) are included in this single parameter. Because of the influence of residual stress and lack of straightness in beams used in construction, design recommendations must necessarily be related to the results of extensive test work.

A circular argument of this kind can be resolved by making a guess at the dead load (based on, for example, a similar scheme), and then checking the dead load of the resulting structure. If the initial guess is not grossly different then a second calculation should be sufficient. The problem should not, in any case, be over emphasized; for modest size structures the dead load is only a small portion of the total loading (1). The imposed (live) loading arises from a number of sources, not only external to the structure (stored material, snow, people, wind) but also from internal effects such as temperature differential.

The aspect ratio of a normal unstiffened beam web is taken as infinite for the purpose of calculating qcr. 8). 0 will allow the most efficient use of material. Selection of the actual stiffener spacing is then decided on a practical basis so as to divide the web into suitable panels. The actual stiffness is determined from empirical rules based on tests which ensure that panel buckling is forced between the stiffeners. Tests on stiffened plate girders have shown that the simple approach outlined above is conservative in that it takes no account of the post buckling strength of the web panels, known as tension field action.
