Stability and Ductility of Steel Structures (SDSS’ 2010) Volume 128 October 2017
The present book contains 130 peer reviewed papers and eight invited keynote lectures presented during the International Colloquium on Stability and Ductility of Steel Structures SDSS’Rio 2010, which was held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, September 8-10, 2010. This series of conferences started in 1972 and their previous editions took place in several different cities and countries, the last three were held in Timisoara, Romania (1999), in Budapest, Hungary (2002) and in Lisbon, Portugal (2006). The SDSS conferences are intended to summarize the progress in theoretical, numerical and experimental research concerning the analysis and design of steel structures, with particular emphasis addressed to topics related to stability and ductility aspects. Special attention is always paid to new concepts and procedures and also to the background, development and application of rules and recommendations either appearing in recently published Codes/Specifications or about to be included in their upcoming versions.
