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

This is the 14th post of the Tension Member’s Posts which includes The first point of discussion about the slenderness value for tension members. the value of L/r value for tension members. The second point is regarding code provisions, the introduction to shear block.

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

This is the 15th post of the Tension Member’s Posts which includes a solved problem -4-4 from Prof. Abi O. Aghayere ‘s book. Check the adequacy of the channel- without considering the block shear.

This is the link to post 11: **A Solved problem ****4-4, P ult without – block shear.**

### Solved problem 4-6-P-ult with-block shear.

There are two posts, the 16th and 17ths post of the Tension Member’s Posts which include 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 of the Tension Member’s Posts which includes a discussion of 2 items, the first item is a sample for the block shear various patterns for a given section acted upon by tension force. The second part is about the UBS values and what is a coped beam. The different names are given for the coped beam, based on the cut places, from the commentary of the AISC.

### A Solved problem 5-7.

This is the 19th post of the Tension Member’s Posts which includes a Solved problem 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 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.

In this post, we 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.

n this post, we will start to discuss the concept of load transfer by fasteners to the estimation of the net area. We can consider this method included in the solved problem **as a refinement** for the selection of the final net area. We have 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-1/2.

In this post, we 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 failure roots of failures and the corresponding net areas.

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