Abstract

The shear resistance of thin metal plate consists of three components: shear buckling, the tension field effect and contribution of the flanges. This paper considers the first two. The shear resistance of steel plate at elevated temperatures is known when temperature across the plate is constant. However, in many practical applications the temperature distribution across the plate is non-uniform. This paper presents the results of a FEM analysis of thin carbon- and stainless steel plates at ambient as well as uniform and non-uniform elevated temperatures. A method for predicting the shear buckling- and post-buckling resistances of thin steel plate at non-uniform elevated temperatures is also proposed.
