Second Order Analysis on a Typical Steel Industrial Plant
The deficiency of effective length approach and the necessity of second order analysis design on nonferrous engineering steel industrial plant are emphasized. Second order analysis approach by nonlinear finite-element with ANSYS is used to design an industrial plant. The example indicates that second-order effect should not be neglect and the result of first order analysis is not safe enough for industrial plant.
