Buckling Analysis of Plate Girder with Corrugated Web

Authors(2) :-Maya Prakash, Prof. Sabeena M. V.

The corrugated steel profiles is widely used in many fields because of its favourable properties and has been applied since the 1920s.It has been increasingly used in web of steel and composite bridges and it increases the shear capacity of web. The corrugated web beams behaves in which the bending moments and applied forces are transversed only via flanges, while the transverse forces are only transferred through the corrugated web. This paper aims to develop three dimensional model using ANSYS 16.1 to study the effect of trapezoidal corrugated shape and compare this with plate girder with stiffeners. This software is employed to find the behaviour and ultimate load capacity of girders. Parametric study was conducted on the trapezoidal corrugated web and this involves the influence of corrugation angle, corrugation thickness and influence of the loading position. Then comparative study was done with plate girder with transverse stiffeners and find out the effect of stiffeners on the plate girder.
