--------- curvature method, expressions (5.31)-(5,37)
In figure A2-1 there is no effect of creep (yef = 0). Figure A2-2 shows the corresponding curves for yef = 2 (a comparatively high value). Two sets of curves are given for the curvature method. The upper curves are based on Kp = 1, corresponding to the method in ENV 1992-1- 1, 126.96.36.199.3, where there is no effect of creep. The lower curves are based on K9 according to expression (5.37).
Without effect of creep (= ENV), the curvature method is consistently unsafe for low and moderate slenderness. This can be seen also in the third column of diagrams in table A2-1.
With K9 according to expression (5.37), creep is well taken into account.
