The critical temperature for an arched corrugated steel sheet exposed to fully developed fire is determined in this paper. The analysis is performed on 3D numerical model developed within the ANSYS computational environment with parameters calibrated experimentally on an experiment performed for persistent design scenario. During the simulations performed the self-supporting steel sheet with an assumed initial shape imperfection is at first loaded with static load, up to a predetermined level of material effort, and subsequently evenly heated until the capability to safely resist the applied load is completely exhausted. Because of the nonlinearity of the analysis having several sources, the location of the limit point on the equilibrium path determined during calculations represents the temperature sought. Three imperfection patterns, denoted as A, B and C are considered. In the case A the imperfection has the shape and magnitude measured in situ, selected as representative for a set of 10 steel sheets of the same type. In the case B the imperfection is a substitute one with size analogous to that assumed in the case A, but with a different shape, corresponding to the first antisymmetric buckling mode identified in conventional Local Buckling Analysis (LBA). In the case C the shape of imperfection B has been kept, but the positive and negative deviation from the perfect circular shape have been increased twofold.
