Tag: Members Engineered Glued Wood Products

These products, which include glued-laminated timber, prefabricated wood I joists, and structural composite lumber (SCL), are used extensively in residential and nonresidential building construction. They are used instead of nonwood products, such as steel framing elements, or as substitutes for conventional sawn-lumber products. Characteristics of Glulam Timber Glued-laminated timber, or glulam as it is often referred to, is the oldest type of the engineered

Tag: Members Members Stressed Primarily in Bending

Rolled beams and fabricated girder spans provide economical bridges for railways. Laying out the lateral bracing system and diaphragms or cross frames is the first step in the design procedure. Some of the requirements for the bracing have grown out of railroad bridge experience, including some fatigue failures that required changes in previously acceptable practices. Lateral Bracing A system of bottom lateral bracing should

Tag: Members Compression Members

Compression members should be configured so the main elements of the section are connected directly to the gusset plates, pins, or other members. For members consisting of parts connected by lacing or solid cover plates, the minimum thickness of the web plate, should not be less than: Outstanding Elements In Compression The width, in, of the outstanding elements of compression

Tag: Members Concentrically Loaded Compression Members

These provisions are for members in which the resultant of all loads is an axial load passing through the effective section calculated at the stress Fn as subsequently defined. Concentrically loaded angle sections should be designed for an additional moment according to the AISI Specification. The slenderness ratio, KL/ r, of all compression members should preferably be limited to 200 (300 during construction). The

Tag: Members Built-Up Tension Members

The design strength and allowable stresses for prismatic built-up members subjected to axial tension by static forces are the same as for tension members given in Art. 6.13. Components of a built-up tension member should be connected at frequent intervals to ensure that they act together, that faying surfaces intended to be in contact stay in contact, that excessive vibration
