**In a design process a structural
**

engineer must combine the following:

analysis, engineering judgment,

experience, construction method,

economic design etc. Design cannot be

done if engineer does not know the basic

concept of structural analysis. There are

two consideration in the design of

tension member:

Strength

the tension member must be

adequate to resist the ultimate axial

tensile load.

Stiffness

the tension member must not

fail due to serviceability

requirements

Design of Steel Tension Members

Equations for strength of tension members:

a) For yielding in the gross section:

b) For fracture in the net section:

TENSION MEMBERS ARE

CONNECTED BY:

•Rivets

•Bolts

•Welds

Advantages of Bolted Connections

• Do not require highly skilled workers

• Holes can be done in the shop

• Less equipment needed

• Quality of work can be easily

controlled

• Faster construction

Advantages of Welded Connections

• Minimize construction noise since no impact

wrenches are used as in Bolted connection

• Members can be easily installed

• Easily be repaired when dimensions are

unmatched

• Joints are very rigid

• Shop and construction detailing is much

simplier

Simple Bolted Connections

There are different types of bolted

connections. They can be categorized

based on the type of loading.

Tension member connection and splice. It

subjects the bolts to forces that tend to

shear the shank.

Beam end simple connection. It subjects the

bolts to forces that tend to shear the shank.

Hanger connection. The hanger connection

puts the bolts in tension

Simple Bolted Connections

• The bolts are subjected to shear or tension loading.

– In most bolted connection, the bolts are subjected to shear.

– Bolts can fail in shear or in tension.

– You can calculate the shear strength or the tensile strength of a bolt

• Simple connection: If the line of action of the force acting on the

connection passes through the center of gravity of the connection,

then each bolt can be assumed to resist an equal share of the load.

• The strength of the simple connection will be equal to the sum of

the strengths of the individual bolts in the connection.

Bolted Shear Connections

• In designing the bolted shear connections the factored design

strength (|R

n

) should be greater than or equal to the factored

load. | R

n

> P

u

• So, examining the various possible failure modes and calculate

the corresponding design strengths is a must.

• Possible failure modes are:

– Shear failure of the bolts

– Failure of member being connected due to fracture or yielding or ….

– Edge tearing or fracture of the connected plate

– Tearing or fracture of the connected plate between two bolt holes

– Excessive bearing deformation at the bolt hole

Failure Modes of Bolted Connections

• Bolt Shearing

• Tension Fracture

• Plate Bearing

• Block Shear

– Bolts can be in single shear or double shear as shown above.

– When the bolt is in double shear, two cross-sections are effective in

resisting the load. The bolt in double shear will have the twice the shear

strength of a bolt in single shear.

Bolted Shear Connections

Bolted Shear Connections

Failure of connected member

• Tension Member can fail due to tension fracture or yielding.

Bearing failure of connected/connecting part due to bearing

from bolt holes

• Hole is slightly larger than the fastener and the fastener is loosely placed in

hole

• Contact between the fastener and the connected part over approximately

half the circumference of the fastener

• As such the stress will be highest at the radial contact point (A). However,

the average stress can be calculated as the applied force divided by the

projected area of contact

Bolted Shear Connections

• Average bearing stress f

p

= P/(d

b

t), where P is the force applied to the fastener.

• The bearing stress state can be complicated by the presence of nearby bolt or

edge. The bolt spacing and edge distance will have an effect on the bearing

strength.

• Bearing stress effects are independent of the bolt type because the bearing

stress acts on the connected plate not the bolt.

• A possible failure mode resulting from excessive bearing close to the edge of

the connected element is shear tear-out as shown below. This type of shear

tear-out can also occur between two holes in the direction of the bearing load.

and the connecting/connected plates are subjected to bearing

stresses.

AISC Design Provisions

• Chapter J of the AISC Specifications focuses on connections.

• Section J3 focuses on bolts and threaded parts

• AISC Specification J3.3 indicates that the minimum distance (s)

between the centers of bolt holes is 2.67. A distance of 3d

b

is

preferred.

• AISC Specification J3.4 indicates that the minimum edge distance

(L

e

) from the center of the bolt to the edge of the connected

part is given in Table J3.4. Table J3.4 specifies minimum edge

distances for sheared edges, edges of rolled shapes, and gas cut

edges.

AISC Design Provisions

AISC Specification indicates that the maximum edge distance for

bolt holes is 12 times the thickness of the connected part (but

not more than 152 mm). The maximum spacing for bolt holes is

24 times the thickness of the thinner part (but not more than

305 mm).

Specification J3.6 indicates that the design tension or shear

strength of bolts is |F

n

A

b

• | = 0.75

• Table J3.2, gives the values of F

n

• A

b

is the unthreaded area of bolt.

• In Table J3.2, there are different types of bolts A325 and A490.

AISC Design Provisions

• The shear strength of the bolts depends on whether threads are included or

excluded from the shear planes. If threads are included in the shear planes then

the strength is lower.

We will always assume that threads are included in the shear

plane, therefore less strength to be conservative.

We will look at specifications J3.7 – J3.9 later.

• AISC Specification J3.10 indicates the bearing strength of plates at bolt holes.

• The design bearing strength at bolt holes is |R

Failure Mode of Bolted Shear Connections

(cont.)

Failure of the connected parts , separated into two categories.

1. Failure resulting from excessive tension, shear, or bending

in the parts being connected

– For a tension member must consider tension on the net area,

tension on the gross area, and block shear

– For beam-beam or beam-column connections, must consider block

shear

– Gusset plates and framing angles must be checked for P, M, and V

39

Failure Mode of Bolted Shear Connections

(cont.)

2. Failure of the connected part because of bearing

exerted by the fastener (average bearing stress is f

p

=

P/dt)

– If the hole is slightly larger than the fastener and the fastener

is assumed to be placed loosely in the hole (rarely the case),

contact between the fastener and the connected part will exist

over approximately 50% of the circumference of the fastener.

– The bearing problem is affected by the edge distance and bolt

spacing

1. Usual conditions based on the deformation limit state, according to

LRFD-Formula (J3-1a). This applies for all holes except long-slotted

holes perpendicular to the line of force, where end distance is at least

1.5d, the center-to-center spacing s is at least 3d, and there are two or

more bolts in the line of force.

LRFD Slip-critical Connections

• A connection with high-strength bolts is classified as either a

bearing or slip-critical connection.

• Bearing connections - the bolt is brought to a snug-tight

condition so that the surfaces of the connected parts are in firm

contact.

– Slippage is acceptable

– Shear and bearing on the connector

• Slip-critical connections - no slippage is permitted and the

friction force described earlier must not be exceeded.

– Slippage is not acceptable (Proper installation and tensioning is key)

– Must have sufficient shear an d bearing strength in the event of overload

that causes slip. AISC J3.8 for details.
