 Summary:
 Profiled sheets are widely used in modern steel structures, either as cladding or as casing in composite structures. Their strength calculation is a complex task because of their complicated cross-section shape. Manufacturer’s catalogues provide data about their strength, often for continious surface load, but rarely for patch loads. In this research, the Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis with geometrical and material nonlinearity and contact analysis in the support zones was applied for the strength calculation of one typical profiled steel sheet. The analysis encompassed several patch load patterns. Results of the research showed that such elements can withstand relatively high localized loads, and that ultimate load depends much on the patch load position in transversal direction.
