Abstract [en]

This paper is devoted to the analytical and numerical modeling of the lateral-torsional stability of horizontally layered composite beams. Composite beams are classified as horizontally layered beams with interlayer slip or sandwich beams with a weak shear core. The governing differential equations of the out-of-plane behavior of horizontally layered composite beams are supported by variational arguments. In the theoretical analysis, a distinction is made between the influence of the shear connection at the interface with respect to the in-plane or transversal deformations and to the out-of-plane or lateral deformations, respectively. Some engineering results are presented for a partially composite beam under pure bending moment. In the case of noncomposite in-plane action (orthotropic connection), a simple closed-form solution is derived for the lateral-torsional buckling moment, and it is shown that the exact dimensionless buckling moment depends only on two structural parameters for beams composed of two identical subelements. The results are analogous to those obtained for the in-plane buckling of partially composite or sandwich-type beams, where the buckling moment increases with the stiffness of the shear connection. Prandtl’s valid solution for lateral-torsional buckling of ordinary beams is also found for composite beams in the case of noncomposite action in both the transversal and lateral directions. A generalization of Prandtl’s valid solution for composite beams with partial composite action in the lateral direction and noncomposite action in the transversal direction is derived. It is shown that the lateral-torsional buckling formulas are strongly affected by the kinematics of the connected shear layer. Also, the lateral-torsional buckling of partially composite beams with both in-plane and out-of-plane slip behavior is analyzed using the Rayleigh-Ritz method. This mathematical problem leads to a system of differential equations with nonuniform coefficients. An approximated solution is derived for the isotropic connection with isotropic noncomposite actions, whereas an exact solution is presented for the orthotropic connection with noncomposite in-plane action. Finally, the Rayleigh-Ritz approach is compared with some numerical results associated with the exact resolution of the differential equations with nonuniform coefficients. The Rayleigh-Ritz approach appears to be efficient to capture the main phenomena, including the nonmonotonic dependence of the buckling load to the connection parameter.Read More: http://ascelibrary.org/doi/abs/10.1061/(ASCE)EM.1943-7889.0000489
