The paper discusses the use of lightweight thin-walled structures which make it possible to save resources in steel construction. The highlighted challenges that this industry face in the Russian Federation involve insufficient development of the domestic standards. A thin-walled sigma-profile element with 300 mm in a section height has been studied. The element, its design diagram and loading have been chosen taking into account the structural performance of the columns and girders involved in CFS frameworks. The paper presents analysis technique for a thin-walled profile which performs under axial compression and axial bending compression. The structures have been calculated taking into account their main feature - the initial geometric imperfections. The analysis of the changed effective characteristics and stresses in the cross-section has revealed the significant influence of the initial geometric imperfections of the profiles and location of the extra eccentricity against the element’s initial curvatures. The elastic-plastic behaviour of material occurs when the stresses in the full cross-section achieve 0.71 Ryignoring the initial geometric imperfections, and 0.58 Ry– with regard to them. The paper substantiates the need to consider unevenness of the mechanical properties of steel distributed over the cross-section of the profile. Based on the experimental data obtained, conclusions have been drawn on the necessary adaptation of the indirect method for evaluating the strength characteristics of thin-walled samples.
