Analysis of restrained steel beams subjected to heating and cooling Part II: Validation and parametric studies
Shi-Xiong Guo and Guo-Qiang Li

    This paper presents the results of a validation and parametric study for the theory presented in the companion paper. The parameters investigated include the stiffness of axial and rotational restraints, load ratio, depth-span ratio of the beam, the yield strength of steel, load type and the temperature distribution in the crosssection of the beam.
Key Words
    fire-resistance; steel structure; catenary action; large deflection.
