NAZARIA, Masoud; KHEDMATI, Mohammad Reza  e  KHALAJ, Amir Foad. A numerical investigation into ultimate strength and buckling behavior of locally corroded steel tubular members. Lat. Am. j. solids struct. [online]. 2014, vol.11, n.6, pp.1063-1076. ISSN 1679-7825.

This paper presents the results of anumerical investigation into ultimate strength of locally corroded tubular member sunder axial compressive loads. A parametric finite element approach was used in order to simulatestructuralbehavior of damaged members. The results were then examined against an available experimental test. Validated models were used to derive a semi-empirical formula for predicting ultimate strength of locally damaged tubes as a function of corrosion dimensions. Geometry ofcorrosion can be defined by its depth, length, width andlocation of damage along the tube. In this study it is focused on the effect of some parameters that have not been addressed yet by other researchers, e. g. slenderness of the tubes and location of patch corrosion. It was found that location of corrosion has great effect on reduction of ultimate strength. Effect of corrosion geometry was studiedand formulated as well as tubular slenderness and it was shown that tubes with different corrosion dimensions show different behaviors under compressive loads. In cases with severe corrosion damages, the occurrence of local buckling plays an important role on reduction of ultimate strength and deformation of damaged region.
