Assessment of corrosion damaged steelwork using minimum capacity curves
The remaining capacity of corroded steel beams depends on the loss of thickness of flanges and web. Although the critical failure mode may change as part of a member becomes thinner during its life, it was possible to derive minimum curves that provide lower bounds for the structural capacity of all available beam sections. These may be used to quantify visual inspection.
