Abstract

The increased popularity of cold-formed thin-walled steel sections in housing construction has lead to an increased interest in the development of thin-walled frame buildings in accordance with seismic requirements. This paper investigates appropriate details for the main frame elements of a thin-walled building structure. Some of the proposed details are tested by two full scale one-storey frames under gravity and lateral cyclic loads. The results show that this type of structure offers a good potential for earthquake resistant construction, but more thorough studies are needed.
