The aim of this work is the numerical assessment of the ultimate behaviour of aluminium alloy beams subjected to non-uniform bending. An extensive numerical analysis has been performed by means of FE code ABAQUS with reference to RHS sections considering different values of the main geometrical and mechanical parameters. In particular, regarding the geometrical parameters the flange slenderness, the flange-to-web slenderness ratio and the moment gradient parameter (L/b) have been considered. In particular, their influence on the ultimate behaviour of such beams has been investigated by adopting the material constitutive law proposed by Eurocode 9 based on the Ramberg-Osgood model. The investigations concern these parameters considered separately as well as their interaction. The results are herein reported with reference to temper T6 and show the importance of the investigated parameters on the buckling strength and the rotational capacity of aluminium alloy beams. Temper T6 gives rise to a quite low hardening compared to temper T4, which is analysed in a companion paper.
