Stiffeners for local flange buckling

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
1997 UBC 2213.7.3 limits b/t ratios for tube sections used as columns to 110/SQRT (Fy) unless otherwise stiffened.

Are there methods/recommendations for designing stiffeners to prevent local flange buckling?
