This paper by R Greiner and M Kettler was published in the Journal of Constructional Steel Research, Volume 64 Issue 11, November 2008. It discusses the buckling behaviour of stainless steel members which aims to develop design formulae for use in Eurocode 3 EN 1993-1-4. The outcome is based on numerical simulations of single span members of various section types, subject to axial compression and bending. Flexural and lateral-torsion al buckling are considered. The recommendations for the design formulae have been incorporated in the present version of EN 1993-1-4.
