Article
Cold-formed sections (CFS) fabricated using high strength steel have recently been utilised in construction due to their numerous advantages, such as higher load-to-weight ratio, flexibility of shape, and availability in relatively long spans. High strength CFS channel sections can be used as purlins and joists in structural systems; thus, they are...
Chapter
Polyethylene (PE) is a semi-crystalline polymer that has been used for decades in many different applications. Two commonly used forms of PE are high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). Since the material is used in various industrial applications, ranging from prosthetic joints to rotational moulded t...
Article
The use of aluminium alloys has recently gained more attention in the construction industry. Roll-formed aluminium lipped channel (ALC) purlins have been utilised in roof systems which make them susceptible to different types of buckling instabilities including web crippling. Holes may be perforated in the web element of these sections, which could...
Article
This paper focuses on the web crippling performance of staggered slotted perforated CFS channels under Interior-One-Flange (IOF) load case, highlights the web crippling strength reduction, and provides reliable design guidelines. Finite Element (FE) analysis was employed to represent the IOF load case web crippling behaviour of staggered slotted pe...
Article
The development of new Cold-Formed Steel (CFS) channels with staggered slotted perforations has led to advances in improved thermal efficiency of buildings. These new generations of CFS channels reduce the thermal bridging effect interrupting the direct heat transfer across the web. However, the integration of these staggered perforations creates c...

Roll-formed aluminium sections have recently been utilised in structural systems as load-bearing members. Commonly used as flexural members, these sections are vulnerable to various buckling instabilities including web crippling failure. The current web crippling design guidelines are imperial in nature and their suitability for newly developed sec...
Article
Full-text available
Recently, a new generation of roll-formed aluminium sections have been produced b y BlueScope Permalite Australia and utilized in structural systems. However, limited research has been conducted to investigate their buckling instabilities including web crippling failure. The empirical nature of the current design guidelines may also lead to inaccur...
Thesis
The use of aluminium alloy members in building construction has increased worldwide in recent years, especially in areas with adverse conditions such as severe industrial and marine environments. Aluminium members can be used in the structural systems of residential, industrial and commercial buildings as purlins, floor joists, rafters, decks and w...
Article
Full-text available
Aluminium alloys have recently been utilised in the fabrication of thin-walled members using a roll-forming technique to produce purlins, floor joists and other structural bearers. Such members are often subjected to transversely concentrated loads which may possibly cause a critical web crippling failure. Aluminium specifications do not explicitly...
Article
Full-text available
Thin-walled members in structural systems are highly vulnerable to buckling instabilities including web crippling. Aluminium alloy members are more prone to this kind of failure due to their relatively low elastic moduli. As shown in the existing literature, limited research has been performed to investigate the web crippling failure of aluminium m...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Web crippling is a form of localized failure that thin-walled members are susceptible to in structural systems. The available literature shows limited experimental studies conducted to investigate the web crippling behaviour of aluminium members. Hence, an experimental study was carried out herein to investigate the web crippling phenomenon of fast...
Article
Full-text available
Aluminium alloys have recently drawn significant attention in structural applications due to its outstanding mechanical characteristics. Thin-walled members fabricated by aluminium alloys can be more competitive in construction industries than the conventional cold-formed steel sections, particularly in areas with high humidity and severe environme...
Article
Full-text available
The application of aluminium alloy members in building construction has considerably increased in recent years due to their appealing advantages such as corrosion resistance and high strength-to-weight ratio. However, the elastic modulus of aluminium is only one-third of that of steel, making aluminium members being susceptible to various buckling...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The use of thin-walled aluminium alloy members in construction has significantly increased during the recent years due to its appealing characteristics. However, they are highly susceptible to web crippling failure due to its lower elastic modulus. In addition to the experimental study conducted by the authors, a numerical study was carried out to...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
During recent decades, the use of aluminium alloy members instead of steel members in building construction has substantially increased especially in the areas with high corrosion risks. However, these aluminium members are vulnerable to various failure modes including web crippling. To date, no research has been carried out on the web crippling be...
