Abstract

This paper describes the Rosette-joining system and its possibilities in roof-truss structures in the span range of 8 to 12 meters (26 to 39 ft). The test programme that was carried out to verify the behaviour of the Rosette-joint and the thin-walled sections is described. The test results are given and analysed where they currently exist. The results are compared with values calculated according to the 1996 U.S. (AISI) [3] code supported by a distortional buckling analysis according to the Australian / New Zealand Standard (AS) [4] and FE Analysis results.

Study on Light-gauge Steel Roof Trusses with Rosette Connections

This paper describes the Rosette-joining system and its possibilities in roof-truss structures in the span range of 8 to 12 meters (26 to 39 ft). The test programme that was carried out to verify the behaviour of the Rosette-joint and the thin-walled sections is described. The test results are given and analysed where they currently exist. The results are compared with values calculated according to the 1996 U.S. (AISI) [3] code supported by a distortional buckling analysis according to the Australian / New Zealand Standard (AS) [4] and FE Analysis results.
