Soetens, F. TNO Bouw en Ondergrond Publication year 2009 Abstract This paper describes an experimental investigation into local buckling of compressed aluminium alloy sections at elevated temperatures. Stress-strain relationships are derived based on uniaxial tensile tests. A special test set-up with a furnace is developed to test slender square hollow sections and angular sections in compression. The results of the compression tests are compared with simple design models. Methods are presented to determine geometrical imperfections and residual stresses. The test programme has resulted in a set of test data that can be used to validate numerical or analytical models. © 2009 Subject ArchitectureAluminiumCreepElevated temperatureFireImperfectionsLocal bucklingTestingAluminiumAluminium alloysAluminium structuresAnalytical modelCompression testsDesign modelsElevated temperatureExperimental investigationsGeometrical imperfectionsImperfectionsLocal bucklingSquare hollow sectionsStress-strain relationshipsTest dataTest programmeTest setsUniaxial tensile testAluminumBucklingCompression testingCreepCreep testingStress-strain curvesTensile testingTesting To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:c8820ef7-85de-436e-901b-7a3d60b4395e DOI https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tws.2009.02.008 TNO identifier 331971 Source Thin-Walled Structures, 47, 1404-1417 Document type article Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
