The objective of this paper is to provide and verify simplified models that predict the longitudinal stresses that develop in C-section purlins in uplift. The paper begins with the simple case of flexural stress; where the force has to be applied at the shear center, or the section braced in both flanges. Restrictions on load application point and restraint… CONTINUE READING
