Abstract

The local buckling analysis of fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) composite open and closed thin-walled section beams and columns is presented. Explicit expressions are developed for axially loaded and for bent box-, I-, C-, Z-, and L-members. These simple, explicit formulas contain the width and the bending stiffnesses (D11, D22, D12, D66) of each wall segment. The utility of the method is demonstrated by numerical examples.
