This project deals with the investigation on behavior of Cold formed steel Built-up Battened columns The built-up column is fabricated using two lipped channel sections placed back to back. The cross sectional dimensions are selected based on the limitations for prequalified section in AISI S100 -2007 for single section. Spacing has been chosen such that to have moment of inertia about major axis equals with the 1.5 times moment of inertia about minor axis (IXX = IYY). This project deals with the Numerical, Theoretical study on Built-up columns.
