Connections in cold-formed steel structures using multiple press joins can develop moment resistance. This paper describes and presents the results of a series of tests on cold-formed steel C sections with multiple press joined connections. The experimental results are compared with similar tests on simply supported and pinned end connected beams and the degree of partial fixity is assessed. The failure load can be predicted using plastic analysis techniques.
