Tension Members, Compression Members, Steel Structure, Fasteners, Joints


In this various elements of steel structure like tension member, compression member and flexural member are connecting by fasteners or connectors. Many a times, built-up sections are provided to meet the requirements of heavy loads and long spans. Such sections also need to be connected together to act in unison as one unit. The forces exerted by one element on another are transferred through these fasteners, which should therefore be adequate to transmit the forces safely. Only properly connected and detailed members and connections can transfer the forces safely from top to the foundation. Different types of fasteners available for making connections are rivets, bolts, pins and welds. Today, steel structures are constructed with bolting or welding or by combination of both. To simplify the analysis and design, a number of assumptions and approximations are made based on experimental results, past performance and ductility of steel. The ultimate aim of connection design is to produce a joint that is simple, compatible, feasible, easy to fabricate and is safe and economical.
