axial load

axial load

[′ak·sē·əl ′lōd]
(mechanics)
A force with its resultant passing through the centroid of a particular section and being perpendicular to the plane of the section.

axial load, axial force

The resultant longitudinal internal component of force which acts perpendicular to the cross section of a structural member and at its centroid, producing uniform stress.

It been found from the nonlinear modeling by ANSYS program a significant influence of the proportion of the D/t ratio on the axial load capacity of the concrete filled steel tubular, where concluded that the axial load capacity of the columns increases significantly when lowering the value of the of D/t under the value 47, but when increasing the value of the D/t over 47 the axial load capacity of the columns increases in small rates.
For the case of axial load, local deformation in the frontal part at the vertical symmetry plane is observed.
It significantly increases the axial load carrying capacity and thus the service life of the main bearings in wind turbines.

The P21-S600G and P30-S600G specimens with 10 mm gap between the steel form and the load-transfer steel plate on the top of the column showed the same axial stiffness with the RC specimens (R21-S600 and R30-S600 specimens) as shown in Figures 4(a) and 4(b), respectively, which is because the axial load was transferred only through the concrete due to the gap of the steel form during the initial loading stage.
Authors found three different mechanisms that could be responsible for the occurrence of this fracture: axial load in flexion, axial load in extension, and direct impact of the elbow in flexion.
