    Abstract

    The metallic materials such as stainless steels are well known for the pronounced rounded shape of their stress-strain diagram. However, this material nonlinearity may change locally due to the fabrication, and therefore the load-displacement response of the structural member is not always the same as the stress-strain relation of the original material. The aim of this paper is to study the sensitivity of member resistance to the changes of gradual yielding rate in fabricated columns and beams.We used the automated finite element virtual experiments to demonstrate the effect of fabrication on the overall buckling of columns and beams.
