The built-up columns are generally used in industrial buildings, either as posts for cladding when their buckling length is very long, or as columns supporting a crane girder. The built-up columns are composed usually of two parallel chords interconnected by lacings or battens. In the paper the special type of built-up column will be analysed from Llentab Company. It consists from four parallel chords with cold-formed C cross-sections which are interconnected by lacing in one plane and by battens in four perpendicular planes. Such types of columns are especially convenient for the relatively high light steel halls. Analysis of the behaviour of such column will be performed: a) on the model with smeared equivalent bending and shear stiffness’s using analytical solution, b) on the discrete model using FEM and commercial program ANSYS. The theory of the second order taking into account the initial imperfections and the shear deformations will be employed.
