5 August 2020 | Ep.33 – Structures of steel & composite columns
In this episode of Stirring the Pot, we talk with Won Hee Kang who is a Senior Lecturer in Structural Reliability at Western Sydney University.
He has been part of team collaborating with HERA to drive research into evaluation of capacity factors for API 5L products in non-composite and composite column applications.
We’ll delve into these spirally welded circular hollow sections which have widespread availability in various dimensions, including the forward analysis carried out to calibrate the capacity factor for steel, and the inverse reliability analysis to estimate the required number of material tests to meet the target reliability level for given capacity factors.
