WP 3 –¬†Categorization of the details and design rules

Objectives

Based on the investigations carried out at material level (within WP1) and on components and full scale details (within WP2), in WP3 fatigue design rules and recommendations for cold formed steel sections and details adapted to EN 1993-1-9 formulations will be developed and calibrated based on tests results and numerical calculations.

Worked examples will also be produced, in order to provide the users with guidance during the design process.

Objective 3.1 : Categorization of the analysed cold formed steel structural details

Objective 3.2 : Development of a fatigue design model for cold formed steel details to be implemented in the fatigue design methodology  of EN 1993-1-9

Objective 3.3 : Development of worked examples.
