Title of the Paper


Investigation of distortional / global buckling
interaction on cold formed steel lipped channel
columns

Keywords Cold Formed Steel, Lipped Channel Columns,


(between Five to Eight) Buckling Interaction, Axial
Compression,Numerical Analysis

The paper presents the investigation on cold formed steel lipped channel
columns experiencing distortional and global buckling interaction under
axial compression. Three cross sections are chosen based upon the
limitations given in the draft IS 801 code. The cross section dimensions
ensures equal distortional/global critical buckling loads, thus maximizing
the distortional/global mode interaction effects through elastic buckling

analysis using CUFSM software. The plate slenderness ratio (b/t) is


within the limit to avoid local buckling. The ends of the columns are
considered as Pinned-Pinned. The Numerical analysis is carried out by
the finite element package ANSYS. The geometric and material non-
linearities are included.Initial imperfections are incorporated by
extracting distortional and global buckling modes. Parametric studies is
carried out by varying the length of the columns from 250 to 5000mm.
Theoretical Analysis are carried out by Direct Strength Method DSM-
AISI 100-2007, Australian Standard AS/NZS:4600-2005.The results are
compared and discussed.
