Large displacement stability analysis of steel structure of nonlinearly varying section (convex) resting on elastic foundation

Authors(1) :-Dr. Hamid Abdul Mahdi Faris

In this research theoretical analysis is presented to estimate in a plan large displacement elastic stability behavior of frames having non prismatic number of non-linearly varying section resting on elastic foundation ( Winkler type ) using the non-prismatic segment .in the segmentation method. The stability and bowing function are estimated using the method of finite segment.
