Unformatted text preview: 1 CES 4605 LRFD Design of Tension Members 2 Outline & Learning Objectives Demand vs. Capacity of a Structural Element in Tension; Derivation of Limit-State Equations for member in Tension; Definition of Gross, Net, Effective Areas for fracture failure; CES 4605 Lecture 03 CES 4605 Lecture 03 3 Tension Members - Introduction Tension members are often encountered in many structures. Principal members in bridges, trusses, transmission towers, floor and lateral bracing systems in buildings. Tension members may consist of a single element or built-up sections. Details for the design of tension members can be found in Part 16.1-D of AISC 2005. 4 Examples of Tension Members Examples of tension members: (single) bar, rods W,L, etc. (built-up) double channels, latticed channels, etc. (From: Salmon C.G. and Johnson J.E, Steel Structures Design and Behavior, 4th Edition, Prentice Hall, 1996.) CES 4605 Lecture 03 5 Real and Idealized Tension Members Real and idealized tension member (From: Vinnakota S., Steel Structures Behavior and LRFD, McGraw Hill, 2006) CES 4605 Lecture 03 6 Limit States for Tension Members Connections can be bolted or welded Four failure limit states must be considered: n LS1: yielding in the gross section to avoid large deformation in the member...
