Abstract
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...
