Tag: Slenderness Ratios of Bridge Members Detailing for Buckling

Prevention of buckling is important in bridge design, because of the potential for collapse. Three forms of buckling must be considered in bridge design. Types of Buckling The first, and most serious, is primary buckling of an axially loaded compression member. Such column buckling may include Euler-type elastic buckling and inelastic buckling. This is a rare occurrence with highway bridges, attesting to
