Comparative Study and Analysis of Cold Formed Steel Columns Subjected to Axial Loading

Authors(2) :-Priyanka R. Lokhande, G. C. Jawalkar

Cold formed steel are nowadays used for building construction especially non-load bearing partitions, curved wall etc due to its flexural strength, load carrying capacity and good appearance. In this paper detailed study of cold formed steel has been carried out to predict load carrying capacity of a column using Indian Standard IS 801-1975, British Standard BS 5950-5:1998, finite element software ABAQUS . A series of parametric tests were also carried out to compare the performance of different shapes of channel sections at various lengths (500mm, 600mm and 700 mm).The results indicate that the channel sections with intermediate stiffener carry greater load and show less deformation as compared to plain channel section and lipped channel section. The details of these investigation and the outcomes are presented in this paper.
