Abstract

This paper reports the recent research findings of cold-formed steel clip angles in tension. The relevant experimental program and the proposed design methods are presented. The test program involved two phases of testing: Phase I of program focused on the pull-over strength of screw connections on the anchored leg of the clip angles, and Phase II of program concentrated on the tensile strength of the anchored leg of the clip angles within the service deflection limit. Design methods for predicting the pull-over strength as well as tensile strength within the serviceability deformation limit are proposed based on the test results and analytical analysis. The Allowable Strength Design safety factors and the Load and Resistance Factor Design, Limit State Design resistance factors are also produced to support the proposed design methods.

Tensile Strength and Serviceability of Cold-Formed Steel Clip Angles

This paper reports the recent research findings of cold-formed steel clip angles in tension. The relevant experimental program and the proposed design methods are presented. The test program involved two phases of testing: Phase I of program focused on the pull-over strength of screw connections on the anchored leg of the clip angles, and Phase II of program concentrated on the tensile strength of the anchored leg of the clip angles within the service deflection limit. Design methods for predicting the pull-over strength as well as tensile strength within the serviceability deformation limit are proposed based on the test results and analytical analysis. The Allowable Strength Design safety factors and the Load and Resistance Factor Design, Limit State Design resistance factors are also produced to support the proposed design methods.
