In this post there is a list of Tension Member’s Posts-part 3. The list includes posts from post 10 till post 16.

## 18-The Effective Area for a Built-Up Section

The Effective Area for a Built-Up Section. In this post, we will check a practice problem for a built-up section, which is problem no.3-19 quoted from Prof. Mccormack’s book-fifth edition. It is required to compute the effective net area of the built-up section shown in fig 3-19. If the holes are punched for 3/4 inches. …

## 17-Problem 3-4-3 for MC section-LRFD and ASD value-2/2.

This is the second part, of problem 3-4-3 MC section-LRFD and ASD value. We will estimate the effective area. Finally, we can get the strength values.

## 16-Problem 3-4-3 for staggered bolts-tension members-1/2.

Problem 3-4-3 for staggered bolts-tension members. It is required to get the factored design strength for a given MC section with staggered bolts.

## 15A-Solved problem 3-8-1 for staggered Bolts

Solved problem 3-8-1 for staggered Bolts. the solved problem for the estimation of the net area for the different routes under tension force and how to modify these values due to load transfer.

## 15-Problem 3-7 for staggered bolts-tension members

Problem 3-7 for staggered bolts-tension members. It is required to get the factored design strength for a given unequal angle with staggered bolts.

## 14-Solved problem 5-7 for block shear

A Solved problem 5-7 for block shear for which several modes of failures are inspected and the final block shear strength will give the least value.

## 13-The relation between Block shear and coped beams.

Introduction to block shear and coped beams, why we need to use coped beams,? what are the different names for the cut in a coped beam, the cases for UBS?.

## 12a-Solved problem 4-6-block shear for a C-Channel-2/2.

block shear for a C-Channel-2/2. In the post, we continue to estimate the gross areas for shear and finally get the ultimate load.

## 12-Solved problem 4-6-block shear for a C-Channel-1/2.

A Solved problem 4-6-P-ult with block shear. It is required to check the adequacy of a given C channel bolted to a plate against a given ultimate load.
