原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Mullions are the vertical members used in the frames of curtain wall systems. Although they are commonly used in building construction, their structural performance under wind actions has not been adequately investigated in the past. This is because these extruded sections are available in a vast array of complex and asymmetric profiles. This paper presents an experimental investigation into the section moment capacity of aluminium mullions used in unitised curtain walls of high-rise buildings under wind pressure (positive) and suction (negative) load cases. In this experimental investigation, 30 tests were conducted where 15 complex-shaped mullion sections were tested under both positive and negative wind actions. The tested mullions included those used in the captive and...
