Formatted Abstract/Summary



The state-of-the-art of eccentrically loaded single angle compression member design is reviewed. Current code rules and standard practices vary greatly in their treatment and there does not seem to exist a generally accepted method of design. A three dimensional computer model is developed to examine the elastic behaviour of fully welded trusses and in particular the degree of in and out of plane restraint. The particular cases when single angle web members are connected on the same sides and alternatively on the opposite sides of a Tee-chord are examined in detail. A recommended design method which uses the combined stresses interaction equation of AS 1250-1975 for buckling and bending in the plan perpendicular to the truss is proposed.
