### **Quick-start to the introduction to block shear.**

This is the 14th post. The first point of discussion concerns the slenderness value and l/r value for tension members. The second point concerns code provisions and the introduction of shear blocks.

### **A Solved problem 4-4, Pult without block shear.**

This is the 15th post, A solved problem -4-4, from Prof. Abi O. Aghayere ‘s book. Check the adequacy of the channel- without considering the block shear.

### Solved problem 4-6-Pult with-block shear.

There are two posts, the 16th and 17th posts, a solved problem-4-6. From Prof. Abi O. Aghayere ‘s book. For Tension Member with Block Shear For the connection shown in solved problem 4-4.

Determine if the channel and gusset plate are adequate for the applied tension load considering block shear.

This is the link to post 12a: **Solved problem 4-6-block shear for a C-Channel-2/2.**

### Block shear and coped beams.

This is the 18th post and includes a discussion of two items. The first item is a sample of the block shear various patterns for a given section acted upon by tension force.

The second part concerns the UBS values and a coped beam. Based on the cut places, the different names of coped beams are given from the commentary of the AISC.

### A Solved problem 5-7.

This is the 19th post. It includes a Solved problems 5-7 for block shear from Prof. Alan Williams’s book.

Determine the block shear strength of the connection shown in Fig. 5.5a. Both members have a yield stress of 36 ksi and a tensile strength of 58 ksi. The tension member thickness is t = 1/2 in, the gusset plate thickness is tg = 1.0 in, and the bolts are 7/8 in diameter. The relevant dimensions are s = 3 in, g = 2 in, Leh = 2 in, and Lev = 2 in.

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

The post will review the solved problem 3-7 for staggered bolts-tension members. This problem is quoted from Prof. Segui’s handbook. The main aim is to investigate the different failure roots of failures and the corresponding net areas.

This is the link to post 15: Problem 3-7 for staggered bolts-tension members.

### Solved problem 3-8-1 for staggered Bolts.

The post will start by discussing the concept of load transfer by fasteners in relation to the estimation of the net area. This method is included in the solved problem as a final net area refinement.

A solved problem 3-8-1 for the staggered Bolt that was introduced in the textbook Steel Structures Fifth Edition by Salmon.

### Problem 3-4-3 for staggered bolts-tension members.

The post will review the solved problem 3-4-3 for staggered bolt-tension members. This problem is quoted from Prof. Segui’s handbook. The main aim is to investigate the different routes and causes of failures and the corresponding net areas. There are two parts to the solved problem.

This is the link to post 16: Problem 3-4-3 for staggered bolts-tension members-1/2.

This is the link for post 17: Problem 3-4-3 for MC section-LRFD and ASD value-2/2.

### A solved problem 3-19.

A solved problem 3-19. compute the effective net area for the given Builk up section.
