Abstract

The effective sectional area concept was adopted to conduct the analysis of cold-formed Tension members. ANSYS software was utilized to simulate the behavior of cold formed steel angle under tension load. The paper describes the results from a finite element investigation into the load capacity tension members of single angle sections of 2mm and double angles sections of 2mm under plain (without Lipped) and with Lipped conditions subjected to tension. Comparisons were made between the test results and the predictions based on both the Experimental investigation and the ANSYS analysis. Results also comparisons were made by the International codes BIS, AISI, AS/NZS and BS.
