Civil Engineering Study 75-1


This final report presents the results of a study of cold-formed steel structural members made of thick sheets and plates. It contains the following two parts:Part I - Local Buckling of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members Having Compression Elements which Exhibit Initial Out-of-Flatness Part II - Effects of Cold Work on Mechanical Properties of Thick, Cold-Formed Steel Members and Bolted Connections Part I was originally a thesis prepared by William M. McKinney for the degree of Master of Science in Civil Engineering in May, 1974. Part II was originally a thesis prepared by Victor Ai-Shen Liu for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Civil Engineering in September, 1974. The research work reported herein was conducted at the Department of Civil Engineering of the University of Missouri-Rolla under the sponsorship of the American Iron and Steel Institute. It was directed by Dr. Wei-Wen Yu, Professor of Civil Engineering. Dr. J.R. Senne is the Chairman of the Department. The financial assistance given by the Institute and the technical guidance provided by the Institute's Task Group on Thicker Sheets and Plates and the AISI staff are gratefully acknowledged. The Task Group was constituted as follows: Mr. D.S. Wolford, Chairman, Messrs. H.R. Fink, T.J. Jones, and R.W. Haussler, members. Mr. A.J. Oudheusden was Chairman of the Task Group during the period from September, 1971 to July, 1974. The AISI staff responsible for this project included Dr. A.L. Johnson and Mr. D.J. Clark.
