This paper analyzes the influence of geometrical and material imperfections on the buckling resistance of welded I-section columns subjected to axial compression through numerical and analytical models. The paper is divided into two parts. The first part recalls a FEM parametric study of members under compression taking into account different slenderness ratios, as well as different amplitudes of initial crookedness and different values of postwelding residual stresses. The formulation of analytical approach is the main issue of the second part of the paper. Analytical formulation of the buckling resistance is based on a statistical hypothesis of the minima value approach, called the Marchant-Rankine’s-Murzewski approach (M-R-M). Calibration of imperfection factors included in the analytical formulation is made using the results of FEM simulations performed in the first stage of research investigations.
