Definition of the effective area for tension members, and why we use it for estimation of the net area? what is shear lag and how we estimate the factor U?
There are more than 20 posts for the Tension members containing illustrations and solved problems all posts have descriptive images.
Two Solved problems 3-4-2& 3-5 are explained. In both solved problems net area is to be estimated, first for an equal angle and second for the C channel.
How to find the workable gauge lines distances for an angle? and how to estimate the g distance between bolts for angles?
Solved problem 3-1 for nominal strength, how to estimate the LRFD and ASD tensile nominal strength?two cases will be considered yielding and rupture.
How to estimate the net area for plate members? solved problems 3-1& 3-2 for plate members, and how to consider the zigzag line of fasteners?
A review of AISC table 2-5 for plates including the differences between CM#14 and CM #15 and a review of table 1-7a for Workable gauges for angles.
Introduction to tension members, how to estimate, gross, net area, effective area for these members? value of yield stress for different grades of steel.
Introduction to tension members. What are the various types of fracture of tension members? The damage due to the punching of a hole.
List of Tension Member’s Posts-part 1 from post 1 to post 6. The list includes nominal strength estimation, and workable gauge lines.
