    The introduction of new material grades or fabrication methods in engineering structures always raises concerns about the validity of current design rules, especially those based on earlier material or member testing. One of the fundamental structural checks is the overall stability of beams and columns. In this paper, a series of virtual buckling tests is calculated and compared to the Eurocode buckling curves. The main focus is on the applicability of ferritic steels that generally have different stress–strain behaviour than austenitic or duplex grades.
