Virtual testing of cold-formed structural members

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

    Abstract

    This paper introduces new modelling and evaluation algorithms for automated
    virtual testing of cold-formed structural members. These algorithms are integrated in Abaqus CAE plugin and verified against real tests of stainless steel hollow sections. Our tool is capable of creating finite element models including complex material behaviour, residual stresses and strains, enhanced material properties and geometrical imperfections. Also, it automatically evaluates the load carrying capacity of such models and creates test reports. The algorithms presented here can successfully assist engineers and researchers during the numerical analysis.
