Abstract: This paper presents an equivalent elastic model where each bi-linear spring is replaced by two equivalent elastic springs using an energy formulation and in the context of a post-buckling stability analysis. Such a model yields analytical solutions for the evaluation of the behaviour of steel joints under compressive forces, combined axial force and bending moment, which enables the reproduction of their full non-linear behaviour. The resulting formulation is applied to a simple beam-to-column welded connection initially loaded in pure compression. Subsequent loading of the joint in combined bending and various levels of axial force clearly shows the reduction in moment capacity.
