Abstract

If corrugated sheeting is subject to wind uplift, an area will fail near the screw that fixes the sheeting to the purlins. Experiments have been carried out to investigate the sheeting failure behaviour. This report presents the development of a finite element model to simulate the experiments mentioned. If the finite element model is able to describe the experiments carried out correctly, it can be used to perform a parametrical investigation. This parametrical investigation makes it possible to develop new, more accurate design rules for corrugated sheeting subject to wind uplift.
