Tag: Tensile Uplift Shear Connection

In the preceding examplem the stress normal to the interface AOB (Fig.2.2) was everywhere compressive and equal to w/2b except at the ends of the beam .The stress would have been tensile if the load w had been applied to the lower member. Such loading is unlikely, except when traveling cranes are suspended from the steelwork of a composite floor above: but there

Tag: Tensile Effect of Elevated Temperatures on Tensile Properties

The behavior of structural steels subjected to short-time loadings at elevated temperatures is usually determined from short-time tension tests. In general, the stress-strain curve becomes more rounded and the yield strength and tensile strength are reduced as temperatures are increased. The ratios of the elevated-temperature value to room-temperature value of yield and tensile strengths of several structural steels are shown

Tag: Tensile Effect of Strain Rate on Tensile Properties

Tensile properties of structural steels are usually determined at relatively slow strain rates to obtain information appropriate for designing structures subjected to static loads. In the design of structures subjected to high loading rates, such as those caused by impact loads, however, it may be necessary to consider the variation in tensile properties with strain rate. Figure 1.8 shows the

Tag: Tensile Effect of Cold Work on Tensile Properties

In the fabrication of structures, steel plates and shapes are often formed at room temperatures into desired shapes. These cold-forming operations cause inelastic deformation, since the steel retains its formed shape. To illustrate the general effects of such deformation on strength and ductility, the elemental behavior of a carbon-steel tension specimen subjected to plastic deformation and subsequent tensile reloadings will

Tag: Tensile Properties in Shear

The ratio of shear stress to shear strain during initial elastic behavior is the shear modulus G. According to the theory of elasticity, this quantity is related to the modulus of elasticity E and Poisson’s ratio V  by Thus a minimum value of G for structural steels is about 11 x 10^3 ksi. The yield stress in shear is

Tag: Tensile Tensile Properties

The tensile properties of steel are generally determined from tension tests on small specimens or coupons in accordance with standard ASTM procedures. The behavior of steels in these tests is closely related to the behavior of structural-steel members under static loads. Because, for structural steels, the yield points and moduli of elasticity determined in tension and compression are nearly the
