RE: Analysis of pipes with large D/t ratios

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Lincoln Electric sells a book by Troitsky, "Tubular Steel Structures, Theory
and Design" that I have found useful.

Subject: Analysis of pipes with large D/t ratios

AISCM (ASD) Vol 9 does not really address pipe sections with large D/t
ratios as far as I can tell. I'm sure there are local buckling issues
related to this, but I cannot find any guidelines with the exception of
Appendix B5 which addresses allowable axial stresses: Fa=662/(D/t)+0.40Fy.

Anyone else have a better guideline?
