The subject of coupled instabilities is a fascinating field of research with a wide range of practical applications, particularly in the analysis and design of metal structures. Despite the excellent body of existing results concerning coupled instability structural behaviour, this situation has not yet been adequately translated into design rules or specifications. In fact, only to a small extent do modern design codes for metal structures take advantage of the significant progress made in the field. This book, which contains all the invited general reports and selected papers presented at the Third International Conference on qCoupled Instabilities in Metal Structuresq. (CIMS '2000), should provide a meaningful contribution towards filling the gap between research and practice.The AISI/91 specifications concerning the ultimate strength of axially compressed columns were modified to incorporate the more rational aquot;effective areaaquot; concept. ...
