Tension Members

Chap. (3)

These are found predominantly as members of plane or space trusses (2D & 3D), as members in transmission towers and as wind bracing (single or double) for single story or high rise steel structures. Among the common shapes used as tension members:

Round bar Flat bar Angle Double angle Starred angle

- Yielding of the Gross Area (Ag):

T-2

Net Area

A hole is drilled (or punched) by 1/16 inch greater then the normal diameter of the fastener (rivet or bolt). Hole punching causes some damage to the edges of the hole to the amount of 1/32 inch from each side.

Thus the normal hole diameter

Net Area for Angles :

Angles:

When holes are staggered on two legs of an angle, the gage length (g) for use In the (s2/4g) expression is obtained by using length between the centers of the holes measured along the centerline of the angle thickness, i.e., the distance A-B in Fig: 3.4.3. Thus the gage distance g is

Gage dimension for an angle

USUAL GUGES* FOR ANGLES, INCHES (FROM AISC MANUAL)

Every rolled angle has a standard value for the location of holes (i.e. gage distance ga and gb), depending on the length of the leg and the number of lines of holes. Table shows usual gages for angles as listed in the AISC Manual*.

EFFECTIVE NET AREA:

- When some of the cross section (and not all the section) is
connected, we need to use effective net area concept :-

Ae = U An

where, U = Reduction Factor.

- When all elements of the section are connected, U = 1.0.

For Bolted Connections:-

In bolted connections, the reduction factor (U) is a function

of the eccentricity ( ) in the connection.

Thus:-

the plane of load transfer

L = Length of the connection in the direction of load.

Alternate Values for (U) :-

(Commentary P16.1 – 177 AISC)

- For bolted or riveted connections the following values
for (U) may be used:-

- W, M or S Shapes with flange width ≥ 2/3 depth, and structural tees cut
- from these shapes, provided connection to the flanges and has ≥ 3
- fasteners per line in the direction of force, U = 0.90.

b) W,M or S Shapes where flanges width < 2/3 depth, and all other shapes,

that has no fewer than 3 fasteners per line, U = 0.85

c) All members having only two fasteners in the line of stress U = 0.75

- For short tension members such as Gusset plates the effective net
area equals (An), but must not exceed 0.85 of the gross area (Ag).

Block shear Fracture through Bolt Holes:

This third mode of failure is limited to thin plates. This failure is a combination of tearing (shear rupture) and of tensile yielding. It is uncommon, but the code provides on extra limit state of (LRFD J 4.3). It is usually checked after design is completed.

Even as tension members are unlikely to be affected by their stiffness (L/r), it is recommended to limit the maximum slenderness ratio (L/r) for all tension members (except rods) to ≤ 300.

Max. slenderness = L/rmin ≤ 300

This is to prevent extra sagging and vibration due to wind.

Design of Tension Members:

The general philosophy of LRFD method:

For tension members:

where

t = resistance reduction factor for tensile members

Tn = Nominal strength of the tensile members

Tu = Factored load on the tensile members.

The design strength tTn is the smaller of:

a) Yielding in the gross section;

t Tn = t Fy Ag = 0.9 Fy Ag

b) Fracture of the net section;

t Tn = t Fu Ae = 0.75 Fu Ae

This is to be followed by check of rupture strength (block shear failure),

and limitation of slenderness ratio ≤ 300.

Example of strength calculation (capacity)

Example (T-5):-

- Find the maximum tensile capacity of a member consisting of 2Ls (6 x 4 x ½) can carry for two cases:
- welded connection,
- bolted connection
- 1" dia bolts
- Fy = 60 ksi
- Fu = 75 ksi.

T-21

Solution:-

(a) welded Connection

Net area = gross area (all sides connected)

= 9.50 in2

Yielding Ft = 0.9 Fy Ag = 0.9 x 60 x 9.50 = 513 k

Fracture Ft = 0.75 Fu Ae = 0.75 x 75 x 9.5 = 534 k

Thus tension capacity, t Tn = 513 k (yielding controls)

Design Procedure For Tension Members:-

Design is an interactive procedure (trial & error), as we do not have the final connection detail, so the selection is made, connection is detailed, and the member is checked again.

Proposed Design Procedure:-

- Find required (Ag) from factored load .
- Find required (Ae) from factored load .
- Convert (Ae) to (Ag) by assuming connection detail.
- From (ii) & (iii) chose largest (Ag) value
- Find required (rmin) to satisfy slenderness
- Select a section to satisfy (iv) and (v) above.
- Detail the connection for the selected member.
- Re-check the member again.

T-24

Example on Design of Tension Members:

Example (T-6):-

A tension member with a length of 5 feet 9 inches must resist a service dead load of 18 kips and a service live load of 52 kips. Select a member with a rectangular cross section. Use A36 steel and assume a connection with one line of 7/8-inch-diameter bolts.

Member length = 5.75 ft.

T-25

Solution:-

Pu = 1.2 D + 1.6L = 1.2(18) + 1.6(52) = 104.8 kips

Because Ae = An for this member, the gross area corresponding to

the required net area is

Try t = 1 in.

Ag = 2.409 + 1(1) = 3.409 in.2

T-26

Solution:- (Cont.)

Because 3.409 > 3.235, the required gross area is 3.409 in.2, and

Round to the nearest 1/8 inch and try a 1 3 ½ cross section.

Check the slenderness ratio:

Use a 3 ½ 1 bar.

T-27

Answer:

Design Example:-

Example (T-7):-

Select a single angle tension member to carry (40 kips DL) and (20 kips LL), member is (15)ft long and will be connected to any one leg by single line of 7/8” diameter bolts. Use A-36 steel.

Solution:

Step 1) Find Required (Tu):-

Tu = 1.2 DL + 1.6 LLTu = 1.4 DL

= 1.2 x 40 + 1.6 x 20 or = 1.4 x 40

= 48 + 32 = 80k = 56k

Tu = 80k (Controls)

T-28

Step 2) Find required Ag & Ae:

Step 3) Convert (Ae) to (Ag):

Since connection to single leg, then use alternative

(U) value = 0.85 (more then 3 bolt in a line).

For single line 7/8” bolts ; Ag = An + (1)t = 2.16 + t = (Ag)2

T-29

Step 4) Find required rmin.

Step 5) Select angle:

By selecting (t) we get Ag & rmin

t(Ag)1 (Ag)2

1/4 2.47 2.41

3/8 2.47 2.53

1/2 2.47 2.66

Ag = 2.67 in2 > 2.53 in2 OK

rmin = 0.727 in > 0.6 OK

Step 6) Design the bolted connection:

Step 7) Re-check the section.

U = 1.0 (Well connected)

3. Assume that flange thickness ~ 0.5 in and web tk. ~ 0.3 in. (experience !)

An = (Ag)2 – 2 x 1.0 x 0.5 – 2 x 1.0 x 0.3

- Required. rmin = (as a buildup section)
- Try MC 10 x 25 ; Ag = 7.35 in2 ; tw = 0.38 and tf = 0.575, rx = 3.87 in.

- An = 7.35 – 2 x 1.0 x 0.575 – 2 x 1.0 x 0.38

- (i) Yielding Tn = 0.9 x 50 x (2 x 7.35) = 661.5 k

Tie Plates:

For built-up members, tie plates are required to make the

members to behave as a single unit.

- Between tie plates, each member behaves as a single.
- Therefore, l/r between tie-plates corresponds to that for
- a single member.

For single , rmin = ry ; ry = 1.0 in
