Re: AISC 341-05 Section 7.1 bolt shear strength a ductile limit state?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Well, Conrad said it quite well. Shear is not ductile.

FWIW, I was taught that bolts were to be used for tension and rivets were to be used for shear. Now that I'm in an industry that doesn't use rivets, I have to ignore that bit of sage advice.
