lateral torsional buckling

Lateral Torsional Buckling occurs in unrestrained beams. A beam is unrestrained when its compression flange is free to displace laterally and rotate. When I sections are used as beams or beam columns the compression flange is under compressive stress and has a tendency to buckle but it is attached to the tension flange which resists … Read more
