Research project - Research on coupled instability of thin-walled stainless steel members
Supervisor: Prof Kim Rasmussen
In recent years, stainless steel is increasingly used in structures, due to its merits such as reliable corrosion resistance, low maintenance cost and aesthetic values.
Nevertheless, the highly non-linear property of the material distinguishes it from carbon steel in terms of mechanical behaviors, especially when subject to an interaction of local and overall buckling.
My research work is to investigate the coupled-instability behavior of stainless steel flexual members through experiments and FE model simulating.
