Abstract

This paper describes the results obtained from a series of tensile tests performed on standard type 304 stainless steel tensile test coupons and on cold formed type 304 stainless steel structural members of lipped channel cross-section. The cross-section dimensions are varied to examine the effects that the cold forming process has on the mechanical properties of the section. The stress-strain characteristics obtained from the standard tensile tests, full section tensile tests and from the ASCE design code modelling approach are compared and conclusions are drawn on the basis of the comparisons.
