Development of a Pure Bending Test Machine and Bending Collapse Characteristics of Rectangular Tubes

순수굽힘 시험기개발 및 사각관부재의 굽힘붕괴특성 연구

  • Published : 1998.01.01


A 4-point pure bending res machine is developed the evaluate the pure vending moment-rotation properties of the thin-walled tubes without imposing shear and tensile forces. The moment-rotation properties of the thin-walled tubes are measured up to and beyond collapse with the pure bending test machine. The test results are compared with those of finite element analyses and existing analytical solution.
