A Mathematical Model for A Cladding Fastener to Estimate the Maximum Pull-Out Force Capacity

Hassani, Vahid, Morris, Adrian, Zunaidi, Ibrahim, Hamid, Mehrabi, Roger, O'Brien and Ismail, Abubakar (2019) A Mathematical Model for A Cladding Fastener to Estimate the Maximum Pull-Out Force Capacity. Journal of Physics: conference series 1529, 1529. pp. 1-8.

Item Type: Article


In the last few years, considerable attention has been paid to the roof cladding systems due to their progressive use in the construction of low-rise buildings. The design of such systems has been gaining importance since they are subjected to severe damage and failure caused by high wind events, particularly at their fastener connection points. To offer a
solution for predicting the maximum pull-out force capacity of cladding fasteners, this article presents a mathematical model for a fastener made of high strength steel austenitic 316. In this model, the two basic parameters of the fastener, namely the thread depth and the thread angle are included as the main elements of the contact surface between threads and the low carbon mild steel batten/purlin sheets. This mathematical model will be proposed to estimate the maximum pull-out force capacity of the cladding fasteners made of cold-formed A2 316 stainless steel. After finding the parameters of the mathematical model by using an optimization method based on a genetic algorithm (GA), a comparison will be made between the mean estimation error of the new model and the formerly proposed ones.
