Behaviour of cold-formed stainless steel stub columns under bending and axial loading

Rhodes, James and Kotelko, Maria (2006) Behaviour of cold-formed stainless steel stub columns under bending and axial loading. In: 11th Symposium on Stability of Structures, 2006-09-11 - 2006-09-15.

Abstract

This paper is concerned with the ultimate load capacity of non-perforated and perforated equal-angle cold-formed steel stub columns. An experimental study has been undertaken to investigate the behavior of such members and several column specimens were tested to failure under axial or eccentric loading. The experimental results were used to establish the accuracy of a finite element model proposed in this study and the modeling was used to carry out a parametric study.
