Abstract:

Article Preview

Both total potential energy and buckling equation of two-span continuous beam with lateral elastic brace under uniform load are deduced, based on energy variation method and the principle of minimum potential energy. Buckling of H-beams is simulated by ANSYS software, then compared to theoretical value, validated its rationality. High precision buckling moment formula is regressed using 1stOpt which is a famous mathematical optimization analysis software in China. The relationship between lateral brace stiffness and buckling moment is obtained. Results: with lateral brace stiffness increases, critical bending moment of beam increases within up-limit, e.g. when lateral brace stiffness increases to certain extent, buckling moment no longer increases.
