Abstract
In general, industrial cold-formed steel pallet racks consist of upright frames and pallet beams. In the United States, typically, the upright frames are made welding the braces to the uprights. If the brace to upright joints are considered as rigid joints, the stiffness of welded upright frames in the cross-aisle direction obtained numerically is very different from the stiffness obtained experimentally (up to 300% higher). A method is proposed to improve the accuracy of the numerical determina...
