Ultimate strength of cracked plate elements under axial compression or tension

Author(s): Jeom Kee Paik, Y.V. Satish Kumar and Jae Myung Lee



Abstract:
In addition to corrosion, fatigue cracking is another important factor of age related structural degradation, which has been a primary source of costly repair work of aging steel structures. Cracking damage has been found in welded joints and local areas of stress concentrations such as at the weld intersections of longitudinals, frames and girders. Fatigue cracking has usually been dealt with as a matter under cyclic loading, but it is also important for residual strength assessment under monotonic extreme loading, because fatigue cracking reduces the ultimate strength significantly under certain circumstances.

In this paper, an experimental and numerical study on the ultimate strength of cracked steel plate elements subjected to axial compressive or tensile loads is carried out. The ultimate strength reduction characteristics of plate elements due to cracking damage are investigated with varying size and location of the cracking damage, both experimentally and numerically. Ultimate strength tests on cracked steel plates under axial tension and cracked box type steel structure models under axial compression are undertaken. A series of ANSYS nonlinear finite element analyses for cracked plate elements are performed. Based on the experimental and numerical results obtained from the present study, theoretical models for predicting the ultimate strength of cracked plate elements under axial compression or tension are developed. The results of the experiments and numerical computations obtained are documented. The insights developed will be very useful for the ultimate limit state based risk or reliability assessment of aging steel plated structures with cracking damage.
