Abstract

A review is made of the research work that has been carried out to date to account for the effects of openings on the behaviour of thin-walled elements in steel structures. Attention is directed to relatively thin steel plate elements typical of those that occur in plated structures. Plate elements that are subjected to uniaxial compression or biaxial compression or shear loading, stiffened plates, shear webs and cold-formed steel sections are considered separately. Analytical and experimental work carried out on centrally or eccentrically placed, reinforced or unreinforced circular or rectangular openings are considered in the review. Design methods of thin-walled steel structural elements that account for the presence of openings are highlighted.
