Extracted from text ... Discussion 'Joint type and the stability behaviour of steel frame beams' by A Masarira in Journal 44(4), 2002 Comments received from Dirk P du Plessis MSAICE The author is to be commended for his very interesting and thought-provoking paper. The paper centres on the DIN equation for lateral-torsional buckling of steel beams and its use of the ? coefficients for bending and warping. Using a finite element program the author was able to determine relative warping stiffnesses for ten joint types beam-to-column connections). He then determined the critical loads for several rectangular portal frames keeping the ..
