An experimental investigation on the Half Scissor-Like Elements (H-SLEs) mechanism deployable structure under compression axial load is presented. Two prefab cylindrical shape H-SLEs mechanism deployable steel structures namely M1 (Bolted base column) and model M2 (Unbolted base column) were tested on their performance in term of strength and stability performance. The model prototype consists coldformed and hot roll steel with bolted connection and tested at deployed vertical configuration. Compression axial load was applied at the middle top of loading platform, transferred equally to the six H-SLEs deployable mechanism through supporting beams. The experimental results obtained indicated that three types of failure modes, i.e. excessive bearing capacity failure at lipped C-section flange around bolt hole perimeter, instability due to horizontal displacement at mid-height of H-SLEs deployable mechanism (Bolted joint area) and member buckling. Among these failures, horizontal displacement nominated the overall structure stability while section thickness impacts member bucking and bearing capacity. The experimental ultimate load was 1.63% greater than BS EN 1993 design load resistance for M1 condition while 30% less for M2 condition. The applied load difference between these two model prototypes was 31.15%. Thus, M1 ultimate loads capacity was satisfactory since less than 15% acceptable level while M2 not satisfactory. Beside, horizontal displacement was identify highly impacted scissor mechanism deployable structure instability and suitable member thickness may avoid section premature failure.
