Abstract

I - beams made of cold - formed thin - walled channels, back to back, can be connected by resistance spot welding or arc-welding. Both stability and ultimate strength of these beams are different for welding method. The stability can be increased provided several battens are attached on the open sections of these beams.

Experimental Investigations of I-beams
