The variation of the hogging moment against the cumulative load (Figs 13, 14, 15), show that for the beams H1 and H2, the elastic resistant moment is reached before the buckling characteristic point ([M.sub.v], [[theta].sub.v]): no influence of local buckling on the moment redistribution coefficient, the cross-sections seams to be relatively resistant.
