Numerical analysis of steel columns stabilized by sandwich panels
Two different types of finite element models to simulate the steel columns supported by sandwich panels are developed in this paper and validated by the full-scale tests by Hedman-Petursson (2001) at ambient temperature. The bracing forces in self-drilling screws, the effect of connections in horizontal joints, effects of the lateral stiffness of self-drilling screws are studied using the developed FE models. Effect of different configurations of loading eccentricity on the buckling resistances of steel columns supported by sandwich panels are further analyzed in this paper.
