Abstract

This paper describes the development of the grillage method to take into account the effects of shear, as well as bending, upon the non-linear and collapse behaviour of multi-cellular structures under lateral loading. The modified theory is outlined and the results obtained from the analysis of eleven girders are presented. In each case, the mode of failure is discussed together with the predicted ultimate load capacity. The results show the influence of varying structural proportions, including the addition of flange stiffeners, and of different support and loading conditions upon the girder behaviour.
