Those volumes of court cases include nine invited keynote papers and 126 contributed papers to be offered on the moment foreign convention on Advances in metal buildings hung on 15-17 December 1999 in Hong Kong. The convention is a sequel to the foreign convention on Advances in metal buildings held in Hong Kong in December 1996. The convention will supply a discussion board for dialogue and dissemination by way of researchers and architects of modern advances within the research, behaviour, layout and building of metal constructions. The papers to be provided on the convention hide a large spectrum of subject matters and have been contributed from over 15 international locations all over the world. They record the present state-of-the artwork and element to destiny instructions of structural metal study.

Hancock Lipped and Unlipped Channels in Compression A test program on unlipped (plain) and lipped channels in compression was performed where the channels were compressed between fixed ends and pinned ends (Young and Rasmussen, 1998a, 1998b). Whereas it is well-known that local buckling of pin-ended channel columns induces overall bending, this phenomenon does not occur in fixed-ended channel columns that remain straight after local buckling and only bend when overall buckling occurs.

9 Iso-rotation curves and proposed compact limit for webs of rectangular hollow sections Further research (Wilkinson and Hancock, 1998b,c,d) has recently been completed investigating the plastic behaviour and design of portal frames and connections within the frames. These papers described tests of different types of column-rafter knee connections, and tests of 3 large scale portal frames manufactured from cold-formed Grade C350 and Grade C450 cold-formed RHS. Some welded connections experienced fracture near the heat affected zone caused by welding, before adequate plastic rotation was achieved.
