85LLT LLT = length of beam between restraints. D = depth of beam. 5 of BS 5950-1: 2000. When the beam is restrained at the ends only, that is, without intermediate restraint, the effective length should be obtained from Table 13 in the code. 1. Where the beam is restrained at intervals by other members the effective length LE may be taken as L, the distance between restraints. 12(b). 6 of BS 5950-1: 2000: (1) Resistance to lateral-torsional buckling need not be checked separately (and the buckling resistance moment Mb may be taken as equal to the relevant moment capacity Mc ) in the following cases: bending about the minor axis; CHS, square RHS or circular or square solid bars; RHS, unless LE /ry exceeds the limiting value given in Table 15 of BS 5950-1: 2000 for the relevant value of D/B; I, H, channel or box sections, if λLT does not exceed λL0 , Otherwise, for members subject to bending about their major axis, reference should be made as follows: Mx ≤ Mb /mLT and Mx ≤ Mcx (2) Calculate the equivalent uniform moment factor mLT : The value of the equivalent uniform moment factor mLT which depend on the ratio and direction of the major axis moment.

3. 9Ao where Ao is the area of the rectilinear element which has the largest dimension in the direction parallel to the shear force and equal to td. √ The shear area may be stressed to the yield stress in shear, that is, to 1/ 3 of the yield stress in tension. 5 in BS 5950-1: 2000. If moment as well as shear occurs at the section, the web is assumed to resist all the shear while the flanges are stressed to yield by bending. 14(c). The web is at yield under the combined bending and shear stresses and von Mises’ criterion is adopted for failure in the web.

17. The web buckles at the centre if the flanges are restrained, otherwise sideways movement or rotation of one flange relative to the other occurs. 3 of BS 5950-1: 2000. 7d, the buckling resistance of the unstiffened web should be taken as Px given by: Px = √ 25εt Pbw (b1 + nk)d where d = depth of the web Pbw = the bearing capacity of the unstiffened web at the web-to-flange connection. 1. above. 17 Types of buckling Sway between flanges Rotation of flanges 46 Beams relative to the other flange.
