Abstract

SCOPE 1.1 These methods cover procedures and definitions for the mechanical testing of joints formed by connecting a cold-formed steel member to a cold-formed or hot-rolled steel member with one or more mechanical fasteners. The purpose of these procedures is the determination of the load capacities of the joints so formed. 1.2 The term "mechanical fastener" or "fastener" shall be defined as any mechanical device used in the connection of two or more members, inclusive of such devices as bolts, tapping screws and rivets but exclusive of welds and adhesives. 1.3 The following mechanical tests are described: Pull-Over Sections 4-11, Pull-Out Sections 12-19, Single-Shear (Lap Joint) Sections 20-26, Single-Shear (Simulated Diaphragm Action) Sections 27-34.
