Abstract

The paper summarises the results of an experimental program carried out at the Politehnica University of Timisoara in order to evaluate the performance of ridge (apex) and eaves knee joints of pitched roof cold formed steel portal frames under monotonic and cyclic loading. Three different configurations of apex and knee joints were tested. The behaviour and failure mechanisms of joints were observed in order to evaluate their rigidity, strength and ductility.
