Stability of multi-story one-bay space pallet racking system studied experimentally and theoretically to obtain the buckling length and the critical load for the upright of the racking system considering the beam-column connection, and frame bracing pattern. Five samples of space pallet racking system are studied to obtain the critical load and buckling lengths with different cases of loading, in addition two samples of short upright of the racking system are investigated under axial compression loads to carry out the upright capacity. The experimental results are re-evaluated using both the American Code of Racking (RMI 2012), and the European code of Racking (EN15512), moreover the investigated system are modeled and analyzed using SCIA Engineer software. The modes of failure of the experimented samples are recorded and evaluated. The experimental program has been conducted on the pallet racks using full-scale models.
