If [N.sub.oz] represents the elastic torsional buckling load, plot depicting the ratios [N.sub.oz]/[N.sub.y] and [N.sub.oy]/[N.sub.y] versus the modified slenderness for the varying values of b/t provides an insight into the cruciform behavior.
For low modified slenderness, our results for torsional buckling of plain cruciform sections diverge with results reported in available literature [9, 11].
The plain cruciform program was modified to account for this warping stiffness ([C.sub.w] [not equal to] 0), with results plotted in addition to results from the program default ([C.sub.w] = 0).
The plain cruciform program was used to demonstrate the significant limitation of plain cruciform sections when subjected to flexural loading.
Comparison of Flanged and Plain Cruciform Sections.
Results confirm the exceptional flexural performance of flanged cruciform members relative to plain cruciform members at all slenderness levels.
Conversely, the analysis shows that plain cruciform sections are very economical under pure axial applications.
This paper presents numerical studies on the strength capacities of both flanged and plain cruciform members that are subjected to combined compression and bending effects.
