THE BEHAVIOUR AND DESIGN OF ZED SECTION PORTAL FRAMES

The computed behaviour of pitched roof portal frames composed of single cold- formed zed sections attached together at the eaves and apex by stiffened plates is described. The behaviour is compared with that of channel section portals which were tested previously. A simplified design procedure based on a plane frame linear elastic analysis is proposed for the design of zed section portals. (Author/TRRL)
