Bolted connections for rectangular hollow sections under tensile loading [online]

Willibald, Silke



The static strength of bolted, spliced connections for rectangular hollow sections under tensile loading is the topic of the presented study. A very common spliced connection type, the bolted flange-plate connection as well as a more recent connection type, the hidden joint connection have been studied. For clarity of presentation, the presented thesis has therefore been divided into two parts:
• Part I: Bolted flange-plate connections;
• Part II: Hidden joint connections.
Prying forces are the main concern with bolted flange-plate connections. Prying forces occur if the flange-plates lever against each other due to deformations of the plates under tensile loading. Depending on the bolt layout and flange-plate thickness, these prying forces can differ very significantly. Additionally, the formation of a complete yield line mechanism can also result in the collapse of connections with flexible flange-plates and strong bolts. Within the framework of the presented work, an experimental investigation with square and rectangular hollow sections has been carried out. State-of-the-art equipment has been used to record the load in ... mehr
