Objective: This project deals with the experimental investigation of the two cold formed C beams, two cold-formed builtup C beams and one hot-rolled I beam. Methods/Statistical Analysis: An experimental setup is placed the specimens on the loading frame for static loading and cyclic loading for the C beams and I beam section. The load is applied axially along the centroid of the beam and it is distributed into two points loading by distributor. Findings: Determined the load and deflection behavior, stiffness, energy absorption and ductility with the number of cycles evaluated for cold-formed C beam and hot-rolled I beam. Applications: The load carrying capacity increases for the built-up member when compared to the ordinary member. Cold-formed beams are preferred to hot-rolled beams when thermal insulation, light weight nature, easy moulding and economy is considered.
