Abstract

Details of some recent research projects on thin-walled structural members carried out at the University of Strathclyde are given in this paper. The projects are, in the main, short duration programmes carried out by students to examine various aspects of the behaviour of thin-walled members under various loadings. The topics consist of the effects of end fixity on plain channel column behaviour, the effects of transverse impact on struts and the damaged strut capacity and the large deflection behaviour of slender rings under diametrically opposed point loads.
