Abstract: Steel framed buildings are flexible, ductile and light weight compared to that of reinforced concrete buildings. Intense research had been conducted in the last decades regarding the fatigue and ductility behaviour of structural steel beam. Prismatic beams are the beams with uniform cross-section in the entire span of the beam. Non-prismatic beams are used to increase the efficiency of the beam, by increasing the strength per unit mass than that of prismatic beam. In this study, the load-deformation, stress-strain analysis, the fatigue and ductile behaviour of non-prismatic steel beams with hunched and tapered ends was compared with prismatic beam for different loading condition. The beams were subjected to static loading conditions during analysis.
Keywords: Prismatic Beam, Non-Prismatic Beam, Stress-Strain Analysis, Static Loading, Fatigue and Ductile Behavior.
Scope of the Article: Structural Reliability Analysis
