I am in process of designing a steel truss that utilizes bent steel shapes as web members. I would anticipate that bending steel would result in residual stresses that I would need to include in my analysis.
DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO FIGURE THE MAGNITUDE OF THE RESIDUAL STRESS?
DO DIFFERENT BENDING PROCEDURES RESULT IN LESS RESIDUAL STRESSES?
