A study on buckling phenomena in pultruded Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) beams, based on two mechanical models recently formulated by the authors with regard to composite thin-walled beams, is presented in this paper. Global buckling behavior is analyzed by means of a onedimensional model in which cross-section torsional rotation is divided into two parts: the first one, associated with Vlasov’s axial warping, the second one, associated entirely with shear strains. The study of local behavior is based on the individual buckling analysis of the components of FRP profile, assumed as elastically restrained transversely isotropic plates. Both mechanical models take into account, within the field of small strains and moderate rotations, the contribution of shear deformation in the kinematic hypotheses. Design charts suitable to evaluate the buckling load of FRP “I” beams with either narrow or wide flanges are obtained and presented in this paper.

Abstract

A study on buckling phenomena in pultruded Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) beams, based on two mechanical models recently formulated by the authors with regard to composite thin-walled beams, is presented in this paper. Global buckling behavior is analyzed by means of a onedimensional model in which cross-section torsional rotation is divided into two parts: the first one, associated with Vlasov’s axial warping, the second one, associated entirely with shear strains. The study of local behavior is based on the individual buckling analysis of the components of FRP profile, assumed as elastically restrained transversely isotropic plates. Both mechanical models take into account, within the field of small strains and moderate rotations, the contribution of shear deformation in the kinematic hypotheses. Design charts suitable to evaluate the buckling load of FRP “I” beams with either narrow or wide flanges are obtained and presented in this paper.
