|Title:||Strength And Stiffness Of Cold-formed Steel Purlins With Sleeved And Overlapped Bolted Connections|
Alomir H.; Vieira
Luiz C. M.
|Abstract:||This paper aims to analyze the strength and stiffness of semi-continuous cold-formed steel purlins subjected to flexure. A series of nine cold-formed steel Z sections with sleeved and overlapped bolted connections were tested in bending. Results show that strength is often limited by a plastic mechanism failure, which reduces the web rigidity and induces an early development of local buckling in the compressed flange. In addition to the experiments, this paper presents a numerical and analytical study of the strength and stiffness of semi-continuous purlins, as well as, an analytical method to predict vertical displacement.
