Design Check
1 Bearing Check for Bolt Hole
Dia. Of the bolt used = 30 mm
No of bolts used for the bearing = 22
Allowable bearing strength per Bolt shall be minimum value of following two cases:
1. Allowable bearing strength = (1/a2) x 3.0 x Fup x db x tp
(Ref NBR8800:2008,CL.6.3.3.3, Page No. 78) = 2.22 x Fup xdb x tp x N/1000
(where ,a2 =1.35 ) = 2.22 x 400 x 30 x 25 x 22/1000.
= 14652 KN
2. Allowable bearing strength = (1/a2) x 1.5 x Fup x Lc x tp x nc
(Ref NBR8800:2008,CL.6.3.3.3, Page No. 78) = 1.11 x Fup x Lc x tp x nc
(where ,a2 =1.35 ) = 1.11 x 400 x (1020-(11 x 30)) x 25 x 2/1000
= 15318 KN
Therefore Allowable bearing strength = 14652 KN
14652 > 2120.0 KN
Hence ok

2 Shear Check for Bolt


Bolts are in single / double shear =SINGLE
Cross sectional area of the bolt = 707 sqmm
Shear Capacity per Bolt =(1/a2) x Fnv x Ab (where ,a2 =1.35 )
(Ref NBR8800:2008,CL.6.3.3.2 a, Page No. 77) =(0.4/1.35) x Fub x Ab (Fnv = 0.40 x Fub)
=0.296 x Fub x Ab
=(0.296 x 800 x 706.5)/1000
= 167.3 KN
Total shearing force carryiong capacity Fv,Rd = 3680.6 KN
3680.6 > 2120.0 KN
Hence ok

3 check for Tensile Capacity of Bolt


Assuming pure tension resist equally by all bolts and axial tension due to moment is resist by only the bolts near flange
of column.
Therefore Tension on each bolt due to pure axial force = 0.0 kN

Doc. No. 321-SC-02-1.0 Approved By KKM Date 12.10.2012
And Tension due to moment MzSd in bolt near flange = 150.1 kN
And Tension due to moment MySd in bolt near flange = 37.4 kN
Maximum tensile force in one bolt = 187.51 kN
Effective Cross Sectional Area of Bolts = Abe = 0.75 x Ab = 529.9 sqmm
Tension Capacity per Bolt = = (1/a1) x Fub x Abe (where ,a2 =1.35 )
(Ref NBR8800:2008,CL.6.3.3.1, Page No. 77) = (0.75 x 800 x 529.875)/1000
Tensile force carrying of capacity of one bolt = 317.9 KN
Ft,Rd = 317.9 KN
317.9 > 187.51 KN
Hence ok

4 Check for Combined Tension and Shear force


Check for intraction of Combined Tension and Shear force
(Ref NBR8800:2008,CL.6.3.3.4, Page No. 78) = { Ft,Sd/Ft,Rd}2 + { Fv,Sd/Fv,Rd}2
= { 187.51 / 317.9}^2 + { 2119.96 / 3680.6}^2
= 0.68
0.68 < 1
Hence ok

5 Shearing strength of plate


Thickness of Plate Assumed tp = 25 mm
Depth of plate Dp = 1020 mm
Effective Depth bn = Dp-(dh x nr) = 657 mm
Gross area of plate Ag = tp x Dp = 25500 mm2
Net area of plate An = tp x bn = 16425 mm2
Shear Capacity of Plate = = min of ((1/a1) x 0.6 x Fyp x Ag & (1/a2) x 0.6 x Fup x An)
(Ref NBR8800:2008,CL.6.5.5 a & b, Page No. 87) = min of (0.545 x Fyp x Ag & 0.444 x Fup x An
(where ,a1 =1.10 & a2 =1.35 ) = min of{(0.545 x 250 x 25500) &(0.444 x 400 x 16425)} x 2/1000
= 5834.2 KN
5834.2 > 2120 KN
Hence ok
6 Block Shear of Plate
Resistance to block shear (Rbs) = min of { (1/a2)(0.6 x Fup x Anv)+(Cts x fup x Ant),
(Ref NBR8800:2008,CL.6.5.6, Page No. 87) & (1/a2) (0.6 x Fyp x Agv)+(Cts x fup x Ant) }
Ant = (lh - dh/2) x tp = (60-( 33/2) ) x25= 1087.5 mm2
Agv = (lv + (N -1) x s) x tp = (60+( 11-1)x90) x 25= 24000 mm2
Anv = (lv + (N -1) x (s - dh) - dh/2)) x tp = {60+(11-1)x57-16.5} x 25= 15338 mm2
Ubs = 0.5 0.5 (1 for uniform stresses and 0.5 for non uniform stresses)
Resistance to block shear (Rbs) = min of{(0.44 x 400 x 15337.5) + (0.74 x 0.5 x 400 x 1087.5)} x 2/1000
& {(0.44 x 250 x 24000) + (0.74 x 0.5 x 400 x 1087.5)} x 2/1000
= 5441 KN
5441 > 2120 KN
Hence ok

Height of Web = 1028.0 mm
Weld length available ( lw) = 2056 mm
Thickness of the weld used (w) = 8 mm
