Abstract

The most of the structural steel members used in structures has to span great length and surround a large three-dimensional space. The lengths of the members are required to increase by suitable connection (By Bolted/ Welded). Thus, connections are needed to form an important steel structural member. Very less work is done in welded connections in Cold formed Light sections. The present study is motivated on determining the experimental tests on welded Connections for Light gauge cold formed Rectangular hollow sections. In this project, there are seven experiments conducted on 60mmx40mmx1.6mm Rectangular hollow Sections. The experimental tests included flexural tests on full welded sections with various types beam column joint connections and the results were compared to codal values. It is found that, the knee plate welded connection with full all-round with knee plate leg size of S=1.5d has given high strength. Hence there is increase of load with increase of leg size of knee plate. This type of connection has got higher moment capacity.
