    When numerical models are used to predict behaviour of open thin-walled steel cross-sections, the nonlinear analysis results can be influenced by the magnitudes introduced as initial imperfection. At present, a wide range of values is considered in research concerning this topic. This paper explores up to what point the nonlinear analysis results are sensitive to the choice of imperfection magnitudes and attempt to refine the spectrum of magnitudes that should be used. The study focuses on rack uprights (with and without perforations) under compression and the numerical model has been validated with experimental tests conducted by the authors. Three different column lengths have been selected to reproduce a mainly local, distortional and global failure mode, so that coupled instabilities have not to be considered in this case. The results show that the ultimate load and collapse mode are both sensitive to imperfection amplitude, mainly in the case of distortional buckling. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    This paper presents recommended methodologies for the quantitative analysis of landslide hazard, vulnerability and risk at different spatial scales (site-specific, local, regional and national), as well as for the verification and validation of the results. The methodologies described focus on the evaluation of the probabilities of occurrence of different landslide types with certain characteristics. Methods used to determine the spatial distribution of landslide intensity, the characterisation of the elements at risk, the assessment of the potential degree of damage and the quantification of the vulnerability of the elements at risk, and those used to perform the quantitative risk analysis are also described. The paper is intended for use by scientists and practising engineers, geologists and other landslide experts.

    When non-linear finite element analysis (FEA) of cold-formed thin-walled steel sections subject to compression is carried out, an initial perturbation must be introduced in the model in order to trigger the failure due to instability. The most usual way is to introduce an equivalent initial imperfection in the model (conventional models) that includes the effects of geometric imperfections and residual stresses due to the roll-forming manufacturing process, possible loading eccentricity, etc. It is thought that results would be more accurate if the actual measured geometric imperfections and the actual residual stresses induced from manufacturing were introduced. This paper presents the determination of residual strains and stresses generated in the cold roll-forming process of a typical rack section (without perforations) from steel sheet, using FE simulation. The obtained residual elastic and plastic strains have then been incorporated in the model, and used as an initial strain state in the non-linear finite element analysis. The results obtained agree well with the experimental results for short and intermediate length columns, where the failure mode is predominately local and distortional.

    An investigation into the test method for distortional buckling of steel storage rack columns is presented. The main problem of the experimental method is to determine the length of the samples to be tested. The paper proposes to solve this problem by performing linear buckling analysis of the columns. Nowadays, linear buckling analysis can be easily carried out by practical designers with the help of newly developed programs based on the finite strip method and generalised beam theory. A simple test procedure is presented and validated in an experimental campaign on four different perforated rack columns. The tests also made it possible to observe the buckling behaviour of such columns, which involves a combination of different buckling modes.

    The beam-to-column connections in most of the pallet rack structures made of thin-walled steel sections are of the clip-on type. These connections are of a semi-rigid nature and have a non-linear moment¿rotation relationship, which has to be determined experimentally. The experimental methods described in the European standard (EN 15512: 2009) and the American standard (ANSI MH 16.1: 2008) are different. This paper presents a series of test results determining the beam-to-column connection characteristics of European and American origin, tested with both methods. This is followed by a comparison and analysis of the results. The influence of the distance from the applied load to the face of the upright, i.e. the influence of the moment-to-shear ratio, is also analysed and discussed.

    The paper presents an attempt to predict the load carrying capacity of perforated rack columns by means of the Direct Strength Method (DSM). The investigation is focused on two different issues: the prediction of the elastic buckling loads of members with multiple perforations, and the evaluation of the accuracy of the current DSM buckling curves when applied to rack columns. In relation to the first issue, a model for the calculation of the reduced thickness of the perforated strip to be used in finite strip buckling analysis is developed. Regarding the study of the DSM curves, it is demonstrated that they can be used to accurately determine the strength of rack cross-sections whose failure is governed by distortional buckling or global buckling (with no significant participation of local buckling). This is an interesting result because it will allow substituting the distortional buckling tests, that are currently carried out in the process of design of these columns, by a simple and easy to apply calculation procedure.

    An investigation on the use of the Finite Strip Method (FSM) to calculate elastic buckling loads of perforated cold formed storage rack columns is presented. Nowadays, this calculation can be accurately performed by means of the Finite Element Method (FEM), because the effect of perforations can be explicitly considered in the analysis. However, the FSM is preferred in cold-formed steel design since it is implemented in much convenient and easy to use software. The problem with FSM is that holes cannot be easily modeled. In this paper, the concept of the reduced thickness of the perforated strip is applied to take into account their effect. A formulation is presented for the reduced thickness that has been calibrated with loads obtained in eigen-buckling FEM analyses. Its accuracy has been verified carrying out analyses on real rack columns with different end conditions

    Selective Laser Sintering, and in general Additive Manufacturing Processes are becoming mature technologies; in the sense that after many years of market introduction there are some well-known manufacturers that provide fully operative systems that are even utilized for direct parts manufacturing. However, the parts final users are becoming more and more demanding, so they can integrate the AM parts in complex assemblies; thus increasing the materials requirements and the final part's properties. Building into previous works on AM materials, the purpose of the present paper is to explore the properties yielded by the introduction of Glass short fibre randomly to polyamide and to assess the performance of the probe parts taking into consideration the AM manufacturing direction in the building platform and the Energy Density applyied to the operations. Folowing to a literature review, the paper first describes the statistical approach and the samples preparation. Then, the samples are characterized by tensile tests and the properties of the material are described for the different manufacturing strategies adopted. The outcomes of the work are highly applicable to the AM parts manufacture process, as the construction of parts in the building platform is usually dictated by the objective of optimizing the use of the total volume; thus implying that not all parts are manufactured in the same main construction direction. © Springer-Verlag London 2013.

    A finite element procedure to carry out linear buckling analysis of thin-walled members is developed on the basis of the existing Generalised Beam Theory (GBT) and constrained Finite Strip Method (cFSM). It allows designers to uncouple the buckling modes of a finite element model and, consequently, to calculate pure elastic buckling loads. The procedure can easily be applied to members with general boundary conditions subjected to compression or bending. The results obtained are rather accurate when compared to the values calculated via GBT and cFSM. As a consequence, it is demonstrated that linear buckling analyses can be performed with the Finite Element Method in a similar way as can be done with the existing GBT and cFSM procedures.

    Starting from a comprehensive set of experimental test results of upright cross-sections in compression, this paper is focussed on how the section can be optimally designed to achieve the highest possible failure load in global buckling. The aim is to optimize a cross-section prototype shape with restrictions on its geometry attending to manufacturing feasibility and assembly constraints. The proposed scheme consists of maximizing the design strength with respect to flexural torsional buckling, according to European Standard prEN 15512:2008 [European Standard prEN 15512:2008. Steel static storage systems - Adjustable pallet racking systems - Principles for structural design] / Fédération Européenne de la Manutention [Fédération Européenne de la Manutention (Section X): The design of static steel pallet racking. FEM 10.2.02; August 2000] design recommendations. This is a bicriteria optimization problem which is solved by formulating a nonlinear mathematical program. Optimization is performed prior to the finite element method (FEM) nonlinear analysis of the solution design. The procedure herein presented has two advantages: on the one hand it considerably reduces the number of nonlinear analyses, and on the other it ensures that the best design is achieved.
