### 1-Solutions for Block Shear-Coped Beam Problem

** **This is Post number 19 of the Steel beam Posts, which includes 1—Solutions for the Block Shear-Coped Beam Problem.

**A solved problem 5.13 for Block Shear-Coped Beam-case-1-UBS=1.00**.

The solution includes a detailed description of the forces that affect the beam: shear yielding and tensile rupture, Shear rupture, and tension rupture. How do we estimate the LRFD and ASD for block shear?

The next slide image shows part of the shear yielding and tensile rupture estimation, with the values of the shear rupture and tensile rupture.

This is Post number 20 of the Steel beam Posts, which includes: 1- Solutions for Block Shear-Coped Beam Problem for the solved problem 5.13 for Block Shear-Coped Beam-case-1-UBS=1.00. Use tables Aisc Tables 9-3a for tensile rupture for block shear.

Table 9-3b or shear yielding component and AISC Table 9-3C for shear rupture component.

How do we estimate The LRFD and ASD for block shear?

**Case 2 for block Shear-Coped Beam Problem.**

**Case 2 for block Shear-Coped Beam Problem.**

This is solved problem #10.8 from the Unified Design of Steel Handbook. It requires determining the resistance to block shear of the coped beam W16x40 grade A992. There are two bolt lines, a typical case -2 where UBs=1/2.

This is a snapshot of the calculations for shear yielding and tensile rupture versus shear rupture and tensile rupture.
