Abstract

The buckling behaviour of compression members is very important in structural engineering especially those that are made from high strength steel (HSS). This paper presents an investigation into the behaviour of four columns which were designed according to EN 1993-1-1 (2005) so that the buckling capacity of both HSS and mild steel column was equal. A finite element model was created which included imperfections due to residual stresses as well as local and global imperfections. It was found that the buckling capacity of the columns made from 460 MPa steel was lower than that for similar capacity mild steel columns with a yield strength of 275 MPa. Accordingly, a buckling curve for HSS is proposed.
