Elastic Design
Q

Slide No. 1
ENCE 355 Assakkaf

For many years the elastic theory has

been the basis for steel structural
design and analyses. This theory is
based on the yield stress of a steel
structural element.
replaced with a more rational and
realistic theory, the ultimate stress
design that is based on the plastic
capacity of a steel structure.

Slide No. 2

Elastic Design
Q

In the elastic theory, the maximum load

that a structure could support is
assumed to equal the load that caused
a stress somewhere in the structure
equal the yield stress Fy of the material.
The members were designed so that
computed bending stresses for service
loads did not exceed the yield stress
divided a factor of safety (e.g., 1.5 to 2)

According to ASD, one factor of safety (FS) is

used that accounts for the entire uncertainty in
According to LRFD (probability-based),
different partial safety factors for the different
load and strength types are used.

Slide No. 4

Elastic Design
Q

Engineering structures have been

designed for many years by the allowable
stress design (ASD), or elastic design with
satisfactory results.
However, engineers have long been aware
that ductile members (e.g., steel) do not fail
until a great deal of yielding occurs after
yield stress is first reached.
This mean that such members have
greater margin of safety against collapse
than the elastic theory would seem to
suggest.

Shape Factor
Definition
The shape factor of a member cross
section can be defined as the ratio of
the plastic moment Mp to yield moment
My.
The shape factor equals 1.50 for
rectangular cross sections and varies from
about 1.10 to 1.20 for standard rolledbeam sections

Neutral Axis for Plastic Condition

The neutral axis for plastic condition is
different than its counterpart for elastic
condition.
Unless the section is symmetrical, the
neutral axis for the plastic condition will not
be in the same location as for the elastic
condition.
The total internal compression must equal
the total internal tension.

The Plastic Modulus

Q

Slide No. 16
ENCE 355 Assakkaf

Neutral Axis for Plastic Condition

As all fibers are considered to have the
same stress Fy in the plastic condition, the
areas above and below the plastic neutral
axis must be equal.
This situation does not hold for
unsymmetrical sections in the elastic
condition.

The Plastic Modulus

Q

Slide No. 17
ENCE 355 Assakkaf

Plastic Modulus
Definitions
The plastic modulus Z is defined as the
ratio of the plastic moment Mp to the
yield stress F Y.
It can also be defined as the first
moment of area about the neutral axis
when the areas above and below the
neutral axis are equal.

or nominal moment Mp (Mn), and the plastic
modulus Z for the simply supported beam

Theory of Plastic Analysis

Q

A1

Slide No. 25
ENCE 355 Assakkaf

The basic theory of plastic analysis is

considered a major change in the
distribution of stresses after the
stresses at certain points in a structure
reach the yield stress Fy.
The plastic theory implies that those
parts of the structure that have been
stressed to the yield stress Fy cannot

13

Q

They instead will yield the amount

required to permit the extra load or
stresses to be transferred to other parts
of the structure where the stresses are
below the yield stress Fy, and thus in the
elastic range and able to resist
increased stress.
Plasticity can be said to serve the
purpose of equalizing stresses in cases

Idealized Stress-Strain Diagram for Steel

The stress-strain diagram is assumed to
have the idealized shape shown in Fig. 5.
The yield stress and the proportional limit
are assumed to occur at the same point for
this steel.
Also, the stress-strain diagram is assumed
to be a perfectly straight line in the plastic
range.
Beyond the plastic range there is a range of
strain hardening.
