Stability of curved panels under uniform axial Compression

Abstract : The use of curvedpanels for the construction of steel bridges becomes more and more popular. Their design is however made difficult by a lack of specifications, especially in European Standards. The present study aims thus at developing a method for predicting the ultimate strength of cylindrical unstiffened curvedpanels subjected to uniformaxialcompression. The methodology used in this study is based on the formal procedure recommended by Eurocode 3 for all types of stability verifications. A series of numerical simulations is first carried out to identify the fundamental characteristics of curvedpanels' elasto-plastic behaviour. Then on the basis of these numerical results, semi-empirical formulae for predicting the elastic buckling and ultimate strength are derived and illustrated on a practical example.
