Which formula is used for the calculation of the elastic torsional buckling force for torsional buckling Ncr,T in RF‑/STEEL EC3?

Answer

The elastic torsional buckling force for torsional buckling Ncr,T is calculated as follows:

${\mathrm N}_{\mathrm{cr},\mathrm T}\;=\frac1{{\mathrm i}_{\mathrm M}^2}\;\cdot\;\left(\frac{\mathrm\pi^2\;\cdot\;\mathrm E\;\cdot\;{\mathrm I}_{\mathrm w}}{{\mathrm L}_{\mathrm T}^2}\;+\;\mathrm G\;\cdot\;{\mathrm I}_{\mathrm t}\right)$

${\mathrm i}_{\mathrm M}\;=\;\sqrt{{\mathrm i}_{\mathrm u}^2\;+\;{\mathrm i}_{\mathrm v}^2\;+\;{\mathrm u}_{\mathrm M}^2\;+\;{\mathrm v}_{\mathrm M}^2}$

where

E
is the modulus of elasticity,
G
is the shear modulus,
Iw
is the warping constant of cross-section,
It
is the torsional constant,
iu, iv
are the principal radii of gyration,
um, vm
are the coordinates the shear center in the principal axis system,
LT
is the torsional buckling length.
