Before I fall in too much detail of design and analysis of the tension member I want to start out with the foundation of tension member. Tension member is a structural steel member that is subjected to axial tensile load. Tension member occur usually at roof trusses, truss bridge, suspension cable, stayed cable, lateral bracing, threaded road etc. Tension member is connected with bolt or rivet, welded using gusset plate at the end of member. In this research paper I will give you some example of the analysis and design procedure of tension member such as tension member with bolt end connection, tension member with weld end connection, threaded road usually used in roof and tension member with pin connection. In general if the tension member is connected with bolt fastener its gross section is reduced because of the holes of bolt. Based on the theory of elasticity there is tensile stress concentration in the holes area, the stress becomes 3 times of the average stress on the net area. The only way method I could find to cut the bolt holes are by punch the holes 1.6 mm (1/16 inch) larger than the bolt diameter. Than the diameter of bolt holes than become: Also a net area of tension member with un-staggered holes is :
