Feasibility Study of Partially Restrained Connections
(Virginia Tech, 1997-02-10)
In recent years the idea of using partially restrained connections in building structures has become more practical and economical. Partially restrained connections resist moment and also allow rotation, therefore distributing ...
Evaluation of cold-formed steel members in the Microsoft Windows environment
(Virginia Tech, 1994-03-07)
Connection limit states design teaching aid
(Virginia Tech, 1994-07-15)
<p>Steel connection design is one area in structural steel design courses that is not always thoroughly addressed. This report attempts to address this area of steel design at a basic level. Its purpose is to be used as a ...
Predictive equations for bolted connections
(Virginia Tech, 1990-02-14)
A FORTRAN computer program applying the ultimate strength/instantaneous center of rotation method was written to generate the eccentricity coefficients used for the study of this project. <p>For single line bolted connections, ...
The load deformation response of single bolt connections
(Virginia Tech, 1995-09-05)
Sophisticated design techniques such as partially restrained connections need detail information on the load-deformation response of bolted connections. The behavior of single bolt, single shear connections are studied. ...
Evaluation of long span composite joists
(Virginia Tech, 1990-12-15)
<p>The strength and stiffness characteristics of longspan composite open-web steel joists are studied. Eight full scale single span composite joists were tested to failure to evaluate their performance in both the elastic ...
Standoff screws functioning as mechanical shear connectors in composite joists
(Virginia Tech, 1994-08-15)
The results of sixty-five double-sided pushout tests utilizing the Elco grade 8, 5/16 in. diameter, standoff screw functioning as a mechanical shear connector are presented. In all tests, the base material, through which ...
Standoff Screws Used In Composite Joists
(Virginia Tech, 1998-05-05)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the performance of the 5/16 in. diameter Elco Grade 8 standoff screw as a mechanical shear connector in composite joists. Standoff screws are being investigated as an alternative ...
Investigation of the shear lag coefficient for welded tension members
(Virginia Tech, 1989-12-05)
<p>Shear lag is a non-uniform distribution of stress resulting when all cross sectional elements are not directly connected. This phenomenon renders the cross section only partially effective in resisting tensile loads. ...
Evaluation of a proposed vibration criterion
(Virginia Tech, 1992-05-05)
A lightweight floor system consisting of a concrete slab on steel joists or beams is susceptible to annoying vibrations caused by walking. This investigation considers a criterion developed by Allen (1991) that indicates ...
