Resumo: The application of cold-formed steel structural members in steel construction, and in particular building construction, has a number of advantages that includes its high structural efficiency compared to the member weight. These sections are usually obtained by thin cold-formed sheets and have slender cross-sections. In recent years the increasing safety requirements reflected in the different design standards, boosted the behaviour of materials under extreme conditions, in particular in conditions of high temperatures such as those arising from fires. The design of cold-formed sections and their connection elements must be performed at room temperature and also in an accidental fire situation, for which the connection strength design value must be determined at elevated temperatures. This work presents a study of the behaviour of cold-formed thin steel sheeting screwed connections at room temperature and elevated temperatures. The shear and bearing failure modes are analysed experimentally by means of a parametric analysis, considering: (i) different elevated temperature values; (ii) cold-formed steel grades; (iii) board effect of the screw position; (iv) and different steel sheet thicknesses. The set of experimental results are used for calibration and verification of the numerical model developed by the finite element method in the software Ansys. The experimental tests presented allowed to determine the load resistance of self-drilling screwed connections of thin steel sheets and the influence of the sheet thickness, edge distance (e1) and the connection temperature. The results show that for the same connection, keeping the sheet thickness and edge distance e1, a change on the failure mode with the temperature increase occur. The finite element numerical model presented allow to study the behaviour of self-drilling screwed connections and determine the collapse load. The cases analysed give results close to the characteristic resistance of the screws manufacturer.
