Languages: English
Types: Doctoral thesis
Subjects:
The thesis seeks to quantify the effect of the following major variables\ud on the stiffening effect of light cladding on steel structures:\ud 1) suction loading\ud 2) flange behaviour\ud 3) sheet length\ud 4) the absence of shear connectors.\ud After an introductory chapter, theoretical analysis is presented to\ud assess each of the above variables (chapters 2-6). Experimental work\ud verifying the theory is presented in chapters 7~12. This comprises\ud three series of tests on full scale roof panels and a comprehensive series\ud of tests on a full scale sheeted building. Other secondary variables\ud investigated include:\ud 1) position and number of rooflights\ud 2) sustained loading\ud 3) cyclic loading\ud 4) shear buckling\ud 5) purlin crippling.\ud \ud The conclusions are presented in chapter 13.
