Chulin Chen, Lei Shi, Mahdi Shariati, Ali Toghroli, Edy Tonnizam Mohamad, Dieu Tien Bui and Majid Khorami

    Steel pallet racking industry has globally used from the industrial revolution and has deeply evolved from hot-rolled profile into cold-formed profile to raise the optimization in engineering field. Nowadays, some studies regarding cold-formed steel profile have been performed, but fewer studies in terms of cold-formed pallet racking specifically in connection due to the semi-rigid behavior by lug-hooked into the upright have been conducted. The objective of this study is to review the related literature on steel storage racking connection behavior.
Key Words
    steel pallet racks; beam to column connection; cantilever testing; moment resistance; stiffness; ductility
