## Angles Angles in in Tension Tension

Shear Lag
Angles
Single leg connected Eccentrically loaded through gusset plates

## Part of cross-section NOT effective Less Stressed

Gusset Plate

Shear Lag

Shear Lag
Effects of Shear Lag
Strength reduction Part of cross-section ineffective (less stressed)
Consider in Design

Shear Lag
Factors affecting / causing Shear Lag
Outstand (unconnected part) More outstand more shear lag Thin / slender outstand more shear lag Connection stiffness Flexible connection more shear lag
Single leg connection versus both leg connection One bolt versus multiple bolt connection

Stiffness Requirement
Case
Pretensioned Members
(always in tension)

## Maximum l/r limit

No Limit 400 350 250

## (not always in tension!)

Members under tension only Not designed for compression under stress reversal Designed for compression under stress reversal

## (may also be in compression sometimes!!) (will also be in compression)

Stiffness Requirement
Serviceability Limit State
To control Deflection Vibration To facilitate Ease of handling Transportation and erection requirements Minimization of damage during fabrication

## Design Design of of Tension Tension Members Members

Design Steps
1: Determine Factored Design Force T (Demand) 2: Calculate
Ag req = T / (fy / m0) An req = T / (fu / m1) Choose a trial section Select connection details

## 3: Determine design strength Td (Capacity)

Ensure Td > T (Capacity > Demand)

## 4: Check l/r to be within prescribed limits 5: Calculate Efficiency = T / (Ag fy / m0)
