Abstract

Cold-formed hollow structural sections are widely used in structural applications. Indeed, the high strength-to-weight ratio, the high torsional stiffness and the significant biaxial resistance of such sections make them suitable for columns of moment resisting frames. The interest on these sections is confirmed by the increasing number of studies aimed at developing a deep comprehension of the cyclic response of cold-formed hollow sections. Accurate and computationally effective numerical models are, however, still needed to model strength and stiffness deterioration of such members under cyclic loading. In this paper, the cyclic response of members with either square or rectangular hollow cross-section is simulated by means of a rigid beam with concentrated plastic hinges at the ends. The bending moment-chord rotation relation of these plastic hinges is simulated by means of the modified Ibarra-Krawinkler deterioration model. The values of the parameters of the model are calibrated against results of refined finite element numerical models to simulate both the cyclic and the first-cycle envelope responses of cantilever elements. Finally, predictive equations of the values of the parameters of the modified Ibarra-Krawinkler model are proposed as a function of the cross-section geometry, axial load ratio and shear span ratio.
