Abstract: This paper presents the details of a study into the behaviour and moment capacities of cold-formed steel lipped channel beams (LCB) subject to lateral-torsional buckling at elevated temperatures. It was based on a validated numerical model of a simply supported and laterally unrestrained LCB subjected to a uniform moment. The ultimate moment capacities from this study were compared with the predicted values using ambient and fire design methods. This study showed that the lateral torsional buckling capacity is strongly influenced by the level of non-linearity in the stress-strain curves of steel at elevated temperatures. Hence most of the current design methods based on a single buckling curve were not adequate to determine the moment capacities. This paper proposes a new design method for the cold-formed steel LCBs subject lateral-torsional buckling at elevated temperatures.
