    • Behaviour of H-section purlin connections in resisting progressive collapse of roofs 

      Yan, Shen; Rasmussen, Kim; Liu, Xinlu; Dai, Liusi; Zhao, Xianzhong (Elsevier, 2019-12-15)
      When a truss roof is subjected to sudden local damage, purlins are capable of bridging the damaged truss unit, thereby increasing the robustness of the integrated roof system. To investigate the bridging capacity purlins ...
    • Fracture simulation of constructional steels in two fracture modes 

      Yan, Shen; Rasmussen, Kim; Zhao, Xianzhong (9th International Conference on Steel and Aluminium Structures, 2019-07)
      The paper presents a comprehensive study, aiming to provide useful tools for numerically predicting the fracture phenomenon in steel structures. A micro-mechanically-based fracture model is proposed, which comprises two ...
    • Recent developments on the Component Method 

      Rasmussen, Kim; Zhao, Xianzhong; Yan, Shen; Dai, Liusi; Zhu, Chen; Jiang, Luli (The 14th Nordic Steel Construction Conference, 2019-09-16)
      The Component Method is well established and incorporated in Part 1.8 of Eurocode3 for the design of connections of steel frameworks. It is primarily intended to provide the elastic joint stiffness, although Part 1.8 ...
