How to figure out Mcr (elastic critical moment) beams (abaqus)

  1. May 9, 2015 #1
    I would like to figure out Mcr(elastic critical moment) and Mpl (Maximum plastic moment) in a beam due to buckling in abaqus.

    How to model material non linearity.

    How to model geometric imperfection (slightly crooked beams)

    Is there any way to import I section (rolled) profiles instead of drawing it out every time.

    I want to use shell elements to model it, how to select beteen the type of shell elements?
