Abstract

INTRODUCTION In order to investigate the influence of ductility on the strength and behavior of bolted connections, Dhallal (1) conducted tests on single bolt lap joints using "low ductility" steels. As part of a separate investigation, Popowich (2) conducted tests on single, double, and triple bolt in-line lap joints using "high ductility" steels. The investigation reported herein was performed in order to compare the performance of 3 bolt in-line connections of high ductility steels (21 to 53% elongation in a 2 inch gage length) with that of similar 3 bolt in-line connections of low ductility steels (nominally 5 and 10% elongation in a 2 inch gage length).
