Abstract

This paper reports on the buckling behaviour of two pin ended circular steel slender arches under pressure loading analyzed by an adapted dynamic relaxation (DR) method. A concise literature review is given of analytical work in this field. A realistic case study is introduced that demonstrates 5 distinct buckling behaviours. The buckling loads and the pre- and post buckling deformations obtained by the DR method are compared to published analytical results. The influence of second order effects caused by arch imperfections are studied and discussed. Conclusions are drawn about the validity of the numerical and analytical approach to circular slender arch buckling.
