Cold-formed steel structures

Started: October 2016

Supervisors: Professor Leroy Gardner; Professor David Nethercot

Industry Partner: Ayrshire Metal Products

Description of Research

This research will explore the behaviour and design of cold-formed steel sections, primarily through numerical modelling, with an emphasis on identifying and maximising the benefit from continuity and interaction between components. The aim is to provide a better understanding of the mechanics and a methodology to be used in design for such systems.
