Tag: Yield Point Stay Plates

Compression and tension members with segments connected with lacing bars should be detailed with stay plates. Lacing and perforated cover plates should be designed for the lateral shear force normal to the member. The total shear force should include forces due to the weight of the member, other imposed forces and for compression members, 2.5% of the compressive axial force;

Tag: Yield Point 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
