Bolts for Connections For the bracing members, we investigate the number of bolts needed for connections. Bolts here are 3 / 4" diameter A325-SC bolts in standard holes. Connections must be slip-critical because braces experience complete reversal of axial force. Slip-critical strength of one bolt is k n R b N m T u D u T b N m T u D n R 4 . 10 1 = φ φµ = φ Where Nb is 1.l, and Tm is 28 kips for a 3 / 4" diameter bolt. The number of bolts needed for a brace connection is n R b N u P φ B & C Frames 2 & 5 Frames Upper Lower Upper Lower Pu, k 5.67 18.7 7.51 24.5 Nb min 0.545 1.80 0.72 2.36 Nb actual 4 4 4 4 Bolts, Σφ Rn, k 41.6 41.6 41.6 41.6 For bolted connections, we provide at least two bolts per row in the direction of the force, and we provide a concentric connection, whenever possible. If connections to flanges are used, then both flanges should be connected and both halves of each flange should be connected; that is, we don’t; connect to a flange on one side of the web only. Flange connections, therefore, require at least eight bolts. Connection to webs using two lines of two bolts each is adequate here. The bearing strength for holes in beam webs is shown below.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
