ECI 132 - Structural Design: Metallic Elements Student: Instructor: Dr. Michele Barbato Homework #3 Tension Members/Compression Members Problem #1 Find the most efficient (i.e., with the smallest weight per unit length) single angle tension member of A36 steel to resist the following service loads: dead load = 60 kips, live load = 120 kips, and wind load = 50 kips. The member will be connected through one leg with 3/4-in diameter bolts in two lines and four or more bolts in each line (see figure below). Assume that the bolts are aligned and shear block failure is prevented. The member length is 25 feet. Use ASD . (Hint: to check for efficiency, you will need to find two shapes with close cross-sectional area, so that one satisfies the design requirements and the other one does not satisfy the design requirements) ( 15 points ). Problem #2 An HSS12x8x3/16 section is used as a compression member with one end pinned and the other

    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.
