Abstract

Steel buildings constructed using thin and high strength cold-formed steel roof sheeting and battens often suffer from roof failures during severe wind events such as storms, tornadoes and cyclones. Premature roof connection failures have been identified as the main reason for such roof failures. Among them, the screw connection between roof batten and truss or rafter suffers from a localised pull-through failure that can lead to the removal of the entire roof structure by high wind events. Therefore suitable design rules are urgently needed to ensure the structural safety of these roof batten screw fastener connections under high wind uplift loads. This paper presents the details of suitable design rules developed based on a detailed experimental study of roof battens subject to static wind uplift loads.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
