Tag: yield stress Member and Joint Design Examples-LFD and SLD

Design of a truss member by the AASHTO LFD and SLD Specifications is illustrated in the following examples, The design includes a connection in a Warren truss in which splicing of a truss chord occurs within a joint. Some designers prefer to have the chord run continuously through the joint and be spliced adjacent to the joint. Satisfactory designs can be produced using either

In continuous structural systems with many members, there are several ways that mechanisms can develop. The limit load, or load creating a mechanism, lies between the loads computed from upper-bound and lower-bound theorems. The upper-bound theorem states that a load computed on the basis of an assumed mechanism will be greater than, or at best equal to, the true limit
