Abstract: Among the various connection practices available, screw fasteners provide many benefits like simplicity in design and easy installation in connecting cold formed steel (CFS) members. Self-drilling screw (SDS) fasteners when used for connecting CFS members distribute forces more effectively with reduced bearing deformation when compared to bolted and welded connections. Even though the numbers of literatures related to the experimental investigations on SDS joints are available, numerical investigations reported are comparatively less. This paper presents both experimental and numerical studies conducted on self-drilling screw lap-joint made of cold formed steel sheets under tensile loading. A numerical model was developed and surface to surface interactions were created using finite element analysis software, Abaqus to simulate the experimental study and the results were compared in this paper.
