2Simplified Thermal and Structural Analysis Methods for Cold-Formed Thin-Walled Steel Studs in Wall Panels Exposed to Fire from One Side My thesis investigates the thermal and structural performance of cold-formed thin-walled steel structures in wall panel construction exposed to fire. I have developed two methods: first method is for calculating ultimate capacity of thin-walled steel columns/studs with non-uniform temperature distributions in the cross-section and second method is for calculating temperature distribution in the thickness of the wall panel included gypsum boards, steel studs and thermal insulation. (Abaqus Unified FEA for heat transfer and structural analysis and MATLAB has been used in this research for validation and implementation of the methods) Finished N/A
