Abstract

The structural behaviour of hot-rolled elliptical hollow sections (EHS) under axial load and bending alone has been investigated in previous studies. This paper examines the response of EHS under combined axial load plus bending at the cross-sectional level. A series of laboratory stub column tests with various load eccentricities have been conducted so as to investigate the interaction between bending and axial compression. The measured geometric and material properties of the test specimens, together with the full load-deformation histories have been reported. The generated structural performance data have been utilised to assess cross-section interaction expressions suitable for design.
