2. POSITIONING OF HOLES FOR BOLTS Minimum and maximum spacing and end and edge distance for bolts and rivets are given in Table 3.3 Minimum

Maximum

End distance, e1

= 1.2 do = 1.2 (22) = 26.4mm

= 4tp + 40mm = 4(6) + 40mm = 64 mm

Edge distance, e2

= 1.2 do = 1.2 (22) = 26.4mm

= 4tp + 40mm = 4(6)+ 40mm = 64 mm

Spacing, p1

= 2.2 do = 2.2 (22) = 48.4mm

= smaller of 14t or 200mm = 14(6) = 84 mm

Spacing, p2

= 2.4 do = 2.4 (22) = 52.8mm

= smaller of 14t or 200mm = 14(6) = 84 mm

Table 3.3 EC3:1:8

Since - 26.4mm < 35mm < 64mm .: End distance, e1 satisfied - 26.4mm < 35mm < 64mm .: Edge distance, e2 satisfied - 48.4mm < 70mm < 84mm .: Spacing, p1 satisfied - 52.8mm < 70mm < 84mm .: Spacing, p2 satisfied 3. BOLTED CONNECTION Table 3.4 EC 3:1:8

Shear Resistance Of Bolt Group For this example, we assume that the shear plane passes through un-threaded portion of the bolt. Hence, gross section of bolt A =314mm2 and for bolt class 4.6, αv = 0.6 Fv,Rd = (αv fub A ) / γM2 = (0.6 x 400 x 314) / 1.25 = 60.29 kN All four bolts are in double shear. Hence, shear resistance of single bolt, Fv,Rd of connection is Fv,Rd = 60.29 kN x 2 = 120.58 kN

Hence, shear resistance of bolt group, Vv,Rd Vv,Rd = Fv,Rd x n =120.58 kN x 4 =482.32 kN Table 3.4 EC 3:1:8

Bearing Resistance Of Bolt Group Bearing failure will tend to take place in the cover plates since they are thinner Fb,Rd = (k1 αb fu d t ) / γM2 Where αb is the smallest of αd , fub/fup , 1.0 For end bolts αd = e1/3do = 35/3(22) = 0.53 For inner bolts αd = (p1/3do) – (1/4) = (70/3(22)) – (1/4) = 0.81 fub/fup = 400/430 = 0.93 .: smallest αd = αb = 0.53 And k1 for edge bolts is smallest of: (2.8e2/d0) – 1.7) , (1.4(p2/do) – 1.7 and 2.5 (2.8e2/d0) – 1.7 = (2.8(35)/22) – 1.7 = 2.75 (1.4(p2/do) – 1.7 = (1.4(70/22) – 1.7 = 2.75 And k1 for inner bolts is smallest of: (1.4(p2/do) – 1.7 or 2.5 (1.4(p2/do) – 1.7 = (1.4(70/22) – 1.7 = 2.75 .: smallest k1 = 2.5

.: Fb,Rd = (k1 αb fup d tp ) / γM2 = (2.5 x 0.53 x 430 x 20 x 6) / 1.25 = 54.7 kN All four bolts are in double shear plane. Hence, bearing resistance of single bolt, Fb,Rd of connection is Fb,Rd = 54.7 kN x 2 = 109.4 kN Bearing Resistance of bolt Groups, Vb,Rd Vb,Rd = Fb,Rd x 4 =109.4 kN x 4 = 437.6 kN

TENSION SPLICES CONNECTION (WELDED CONNECTION) Two S275 steel plates are connected using fillet weld with E35 electrodes, as shown in figure below. Determine the maximum load F that can be applied, based on the strength of the fillet weld. Given that the throat thickness is 4mm.

RESISTANCE OF WELDED CONNECTIONS 4.5.3.3

Fw,Rd = fvwd α (eq. 4.3)

4.5.3.3(2)

fvwd = (fu/√3) / (βwγM2) (eq.4.4)

4.5.3.3(3)

fu = nominal ultimate tensile strength of weaker part joined = 430 N/mm2

4.5.3.2(6) Table 4.1

Correlation factor, βw for fillet welds steel grade S275 = 0.85 .: fvwd = (fu/√3) / (βwγM2) (eq.4.4) = (430/√3) / (0.85 x 1.25) = 233.9 N/mm2 .: Fw,Rd = fvwd α (eq. 4.3) = 233.9 N/mm2 x 4mm = 935.6 N/mm Weld length, L = hp - 2α = 80 mm - 8mm = 72 mm .: Vw,Rd = 935.6 N/mm x 72 mm x 2 = 134.73 kN
