Abstract

Adhesive and screw connections are usually used in single lap connections for coldformed steel. In this study, the work focuses on the joints strength of connection for both adhesive and self-drilling screw on tensile performance. Experimental investigations were conducted on the single lap joints design. The average failure load (joints strength) of adhesive connections was found to be 50% higher than the screws joints. More often than not, the joint effectiveness of adhesive is based along the area of adhesive meanwhile for screw depends on the number of screws used.
