Due to the technological reasons in modern lightweight steel trusses, fabricated from cold- formed sections, positive eccentricities appear in the truss nodes what induce additional forces in the truss chords. To account for the real load-carrying capacity of truss node area the steel structure research in scale 1:1 were conducted. The experiments consisted of two parts: preliminary and proper one, when conclusions from...
TS-based RSM-aided design of cold-formed steel stiffened C-sectional columns susceptible to buckling
The paper focuses on joint-performance analysis of a built-up cold-formed thin-walled C-sectional column with a fillister (stiffener) of the same type, interconnected with a series of bolts located along the length of the compressed members in specific spacing. The quantity of bolts and the non-connected starting distance of the fillister are considered random variables of the problem. Optimal distribution of joints on the stiffener...
This work describes why trending thin-walled technology is achieving popularity in steel construction sector. A purpose of this article is to present the influence of the cold-formed element cross-section shape on an axial compression and a bending moment resistance. The authors have considered four different shapes assuming constant section area and thickness. Calculations were based on three different steel grades taking into...
