Steel connection design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If drawing notes and specs for structural steel require that "connections shall develop the full strength of members joined" - how would you interpret the words "full strength"?
Connections include a welded steel roof truss, rolled steel purlins with shear connections to the truss, and supplementary framing at roof openings using rolled steel members.  Truss connections are not detailed but truss member loads are shown.  Framed beam details on the drawings show minimum no. of bolts required.
