Abstract

This paper summarizes results from an experimental program considering single-fastened cold-formed steel-to-steel shear connections. Fastener motion (displacement and tilting angle) and bearing deformation occurring on the connecting members at the fastener location were captured using an automated, optical non-contact measurement procedure. The results are used to relate cold-formed steel-to-steel shear connection load-deformation response to tilting and bearing response. A general steel-to-steel single shear fastener load-deformation equation is also proposed and demonstrated.

Towards Load-Deformation Models for Screw-Fastened Cold-Formed Steel-to-Steel Shear Connections

This paper summarizes results from an experimental program considering single-fastened cold-formed steel-to-steel shear connections. Fastener motion (displacement and tilting angle) and bearing deformation occurring on the connecting members at the fastener location were captured using an automated, optical non-contact measurement procedure. The results are used to relate cold-formed steel-to-steel shear connection load-deformation response to tilting and bearing response. A general steel-to-steel single shear fastener load-deformation equation is also proposed and demonstrated.
