Enhancement of Buckling Resistance of Aluminized Long Columns of Stainless Steel AISI 303
This paper has investigated experimentally the dynamic buckling behavior of AISI 303 stainless steel Aluminized and as received long columns. These columns, hot-dip aluminized and as received, are tested under dynamic buckling, 22 specimens, without aluminizing (type 1), and 50 specimens, with hot-dip aluminizing at different aluminizing conditions of dipping temperature and dipping time (type 2), are tested under dynamic compression loading and under dynamic combined loading (compression and bending) by using a rotating buckling test machine. The experimental results are compared with Perry Robertson interaction formula that used for long columns. Greenhill formula is used to get a mathematical model that descripts the buckling behavior of the specimens of type (1) under dynamic compression loading. The experimental results obtained show an advantageous influence of hot-dip aluminizing treatment on dynamic buckling behavior of AISI 303 stainless steel long columns. The improvement based on the average value of critical buckling stress, are as follow: (64.8 %) for long columns type (2), compared with columns type (1), under dynamic compression loading, and (56.6 %) for long columns type (2), compared with columns type (1), under dynamic combined loading, and (33.3 %) for long columns type (2) compared with Perry Robertson critical buckling stress.
