INTRODUCTION

The 8th Edition AISC Manual1 uses a model (Fig. 1) for

predicting the prying force which was recommended in the

book by Fisher and Struik.2 Unlike the approach taken in the

7th Edition Manual, this method is not restricted to specific

bolt-plate combinations, since all major parameters which

influence the prying action are included in the model. The Q

denotes the prying force per bolt and is assumed to act as a

line load at the edge of the flange. Test results have shown

this to be a reasonable assumption for conditions near

ultimate, as long as the edge distance a is within certain

limits. The tensile load in the fastener is Bc, and the

corresponding applied load per bolt is equal to T. The

bending moment at the interface between the web and the

flange is taken as Mc, and the moment at the bolt line due to

prying force Q is taken equal to δαMc where δ is equal to the

ratio of the net area (at the bolt line section bb) and the gross

area (at the web face section aa) of the flange. The α

represents the ratio between the moment per unit width at the

centerline of the bolt line and the flange moment at the web

face. When α = 0, it corresponds to the case of single

curvature bending, i.e., no prying action, and α = 1

corresponds to double curvature bending and maximum

prying action. Note that, from physical considerations, 0 ≤ α

≤ 1.

GENERAL DEVELOPMENT

Considering equilibrium of the portions of the flange shown

in Figs. 1c and 1d, the following independent equilibrium

equations result:

Mc – Tb + Qa = 0

T + Q – Bc = 0 Fig. 1. Prying action analytical model

Qa – δαMc = 0

If T is taken as a known applied load, Mc, Q, Bc and α are where p = b'/a'. These are the basic equations for prying

unknowns. The problem is statically indeterminate and no analysis. A third equation which provides an explicit result

Remembering that the applied tension cannot exceed Br:

Tallow = min {4.559, Br} = 4.4554 kips

and the total allowable applied tension is:

Ttotal = 4.4554 × 10 = 44.55 kips

which is 32% greater than the previously obtained value of

33.78 kips. It can be seen that the alternate method is the

significantly more economical method of the two.

It must be kept in mind there are other checks, involving

the shop bolts and beam web, that must be made to assess the

capacity of this joint. Thus, 44.55 kips calculated above may

not be the tensile capacity of the joint. The reader can verify

that the maximum allowable tension, at 65 kips shear, is

41.84 kips, based on resultant shear in the shop bolts.

Methods 1 and 2 for the solution to the prying action

problem provide optimal solutions from the point of view of

least material thickness or maximum capacity, respectively.
