Lateral Torsional Buckling in Beams = Lateral Deflection + Torsion

Lateral Torsional Buckling in Beams = Lateral Deflection + Torsion Summary Lateral torsional buckling occurs when an applied load causes both lateral displacement and twisting of a member. This failure is usually seen when a load is applied to an unconstrained, steel I-beam, with the two flanges acting differently, one under compression and the other… Read More »
