Abstract

This paper provides a summary of results detailing the behaviour of bolted connections tested in shear, which were composed of 0.42 mm G550, 0.60 mm G550 and 0.60 mm G300 sheet steels (to the 1993 Australian Standard AS 1397). Recommendations concerning the adequacy of current design standards with respect to the design of thin sheet steel bolted connections are made, along with the calibration of applicable limit states resistance equations for the three observed modes of failure; end pull-out, bearing, and net section fracture.

Behaviour of Thin G550 Sheet Steel Bolted Connections

This paper provides a summary of results detailing the behaviour of bolted connections tested in shear, which were composed of 0.42 mm G550, 0.60 mm G550 and 0.60 mm G300 sheet steels (to the 1993 Australian Standard AS 1397). Recommendations concerning the adequacy of current design standards with respect to the design of thin sheet steel bolted connections are made, along with the calibration of applicable limit states resistance equations for the three observed modes of failure; end pull-out, bearing, and net section fracture.
