Abstract: This paper presents twenty-eight stub columns tests on stainless steel built-up sections. The test specimens, including I-sections, square hollow sections (SHS) and rectangular hollow sections (RHS), were fabricated by shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) from hot-rolled plates of nominal thicknesses 6 mm and 10 mm. The twenty-eight stub columns, of two stainless steel alloys (austenitic EN 1.4301 and duplex EN 1.4462), were tested in pure axial compression. Both tensile and compressive material properties were obtained by means of coupon tests in three directions – longitudinal, diagonal and transverse to the rolling direction. Geometric imperfection measurements for each specimen were conducted by means of a calibrated electric guideway, and residual stress distributions in the built-up sections were determined by means of the sectioning method. The test strengths were used to evaluate the design strengths predicted by EN 1993-1-4, the Continuous Strength Method (CSM) and the direct strength method (DSM). It was demonstrated that the predicted strengths from EN 1993-1-4 provisions were generally conservative, while both the CSM and the DSM predicted values were closer to the test strengths.
