DORES, Andréa Gonçalves Rodrigues das; CAMOTIM, Dinar; DINIS, Pedro Borges  e  FREITAS, Marcilio Sousa da Rocha. Vibration behavior of thin-walled steel members subjected to uniform bending. REM, Int. Eng. J. [online]. 2018, vol.71, n.3, pp.349-359. ISSN 2448-167X.

This article reports the results of an investigation on the effects of internal moments on the vibration behavior of thin-walled steel members. The analyses are based on the Generalized Beam Theory (GBT), a thin-walled bar theory accounting for cross-section in-plane deformations - its main distinctive feature is the representation of the member deformed configuration by means of a linear combination of cross-section deformation modes, multiplied by their longitudinal amplitude functions. The study concerns a simply supported T-section (with unequal flanges) members exhibiting a wide range of lengths and subjected to uniform internal moment diagrams - their magnitudes are specified as percentages of the corresponding critical buckling values. After providing a brief overview of the main concepts and procedures involved in performing a GBT-based structural analysis, the vibration behavior of load-free and loaded T-section members is addressed - the influence of the applied loadings is assessed in terms of (i) the fundamental frequency difference and (ii) the change in the corresponding vibration mode shape. For validation purposes, some GBT results are compared with values yielded by shell finite element analysis performed in the code ABAQUS (Simulia, 2008).
