Behavior of Tubular Steel Structures

Several research topics are going on to investigate the behavior of tubular steel members and joints. Behavior of tubular steel members such as hollow steel tubes partially filled with concrete and purlins with hollow flanges are investigated under different loading patterens. Different aspects for the stress distribution hollow steel sections connected to branch plates are studied. In addition, several strengthening techniques are studied for hollow steel joints with either circular or rectangular chord members.
