Journal Article
Mohammed, A., & Cashell, K. A. (2021). Structural behaviour and fire design of duplex and ferritic stainless steel CHS stub columns. International Journal of Steel Structures, 21, 1280–1291. https://doi.org/10.1007/s13296-021-00502-0

This paper investigates the structural behaviour and design of duplex and ferritic stainless steel stub columns with a circular hollow cross-section (CHS) at elevated temperature. A numerical model is developed to supplement the limited test results... Read More about Structural behaviour and fire design of duplex and ferritic stainless steel CHS stub columns.

Cross‐sectional behaviour and design of ferritic and duplex stainless steel EHS in compression (2021)
Journal Article
Mohammed, A., & Cashell, K. A. (2021). Cross‐sectional behaviour and design of ferritic and duplex stainless steel EHS in compression. Steel Construction, 14(4), 279-287. https://doi.org/10.1002/stco.202100001

This paper describes an investigation into the cross-sectional behaviour of elliptical hollow section (EHS) columns made from ferritic and duplex stainless steel. The EHS is a relatively new structural shape with a number of favourable attributes inc...

Structural fire design of SHS, RHS and CHS high strength steel columns (2021)
Journal Article
Mohammed, A., & Cashell, K. A. (2021). Structural fire design of SHS, RHS and CHS high strength steel columns. Advances in Structural Engineering, 24(11), 2390-2401. https://doi.org/10.1177/13694332211001498

Despite substantial progress in recent years to improve the design guidance for high strength steel (HSS) structural elements, this has mainly been for ambient conditions with their fire response still in need of further research. Accordingly, this p... Read More about Structural fire design of SHS, RHS and CHS high strength steel columns.

Numerical modelling and fire design of stainless steel hollow section columns (2019)
Journal Article
Mohammed, A., & Afshan, S. (2019). Numerical modelling and fire design of stainless steel hollow section columns. Thin-Walled Structures, 144, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tws.2019.106243

© 2019 Elsevier Ltd In this paper, the elevated temperature buckling performance and design of cold-formed square, rectangular and circular hollow section columns made of stainless steel is studied through a numerical modelling investigation. The fin... Read More about Numerical modelling and fire design of stainless steel hollow section columns.

Behaviour and design of stainless steel tubular beam-columns members in fire (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Mohammed, A., & Afshan, S. (2019). Behaviour and design of stainless steel tubular beam-columns members in fire. In Proceedings of 3rd International Conference on Structural Safety Under Fire & Blast

Cold-formed stainless-steel tubular sections are commonly used in building design as they combine the high strength and stiffness-to weight ratios offered by closed cross-sections with the corrosion resistance and durability offered by stainless stee...
