Fwd: Re: Cold Formed Steel Design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If using AISI Cold Formed Steel Design Manual for designing bolted
tension members, be careful of equations E3.2-2 and E3.2-3.

Several years ago in designing wind damage repairs to a
"pre-engineered" metal building, I discovered that if I increased the
width of the bolted member, keeping the bolt size and number the same,
the allowable stress on the cross section went down, quite the
opposite of what I would expect.
