Abstract

An experimental investigation on cold-formed ferritic stainless steel X-joints of rectangular hollow sections is performed. A total of 24 tests was conducted with angle be-Tween chord and brace members at either 45° or 90°. Axial compression force was applied to the brace members of the X-joint specimens between fixed ends. Chord face indentation and lateral deformation of chord side wall were measured during testing. Test results were com-pared with the design strengths predicted by existing design rules. Reliability analysis was performed. It is shown that the existing design rules are generally not suitable to predict the strength of ferritic stainless steel X-joints in this test program.
