Tag: Uniformly Compressed Stiffened Elements Effective Widths of Stiffened Elements

Uniformly Compressed Stiffened Elements The effective width for load capacity determination depends on a slenderness factor  defined as where k = plate buckling coefficient (4.0 for stiffened elements supported by a web along each longitudinal edge; values for other conditions are given subsequently) ƒ = maximum compressive stress (with no safety factor applied) E = Modulus of elasticity (29,500 ksi
