Cold-Formed Light Gauge Channel Sections, Welded Connection, Flexural members


The present study is focused on determining the experimental tests on welded knee connections for Light gauge cold formed channel sections. In this paper, there are seven experiments conducted on 100x60x15x2mm Channel sections. The experimental tests included flexural tests on Full welded sections with various Beam Column Knee joint connections and the results were compared to codal values. It is found that the Knee plate welded connection has given high strength for the connection with full all-round welded knee leg size of S=d, beyond that the increase is small. Hence Knee Plate size of S=d is ideal. This type of connection gives the maximum Moment capacity before buckling failure.
