The effect of profiled steel sheet's cross section on the strength-to-weight ratio of profiled steel sheet dry board floor system: A parametric study



Composite system of Profiled Steel Sheet Dry Board (PSSDB) is a system composed of profiled steel sheet (PSS) and dry board (DB), attached together by self-tapping or selfdrilling screws. PSS, the most significant structural component of this system is currently sourced from the available profiles in local markets. Yet, it is apparent that manufacturing specific PSS for this system can result in a more economical system. This paper investigates the effect of varying cross-sections of PSS on the PSSDB system regarding ultimate load carrying capacity (strength) and (weight) of the system.
