Svensson and Plum [6] provided a theoretical basis for increasing torsional buckling strength of flanged cruciform members by using intermediate stiffener plates welded between adjacent flanges of W and WT sections.
However, as time progressed, this same type of crack was now being detected at the bottom of intermediate stiffeners where they connect to the transverse brace frames at the middle of the spans.
In this case, extra stiffeners installed between the length of PE beam, referred as intermediate stiffeners, may provide extra constraint and further enhance the composite action.
The effectiveness of column constraint and intermediate stiffeners, such as midspan stiffener and plastic hinge zone stiffener, was investigated.
Effectiveness of Intermediate Stiffeners. Since premature failure of the PW specimens was observed, it is more reliable to compare the effectiveness of composite action based on test results from PS specimens.
