Compute the nominal block shear strength of the tension member shown in Figure P3.5-1. ASTM A572 Grade 50 steel is used. The halls are 7 8 inch in diameter.

Chapter 3, Problem 3.5.1P, Compute the nominal block shear strength of the tension member shown in Figure P3.5-1. ASTM A572

To determine

The nominal block shear strength of tension member.

Explanation of Solution

Given:

The following figure shows the A572 Grade 50 steel connection with 78 bolts.

Figure-(1)

Concept Used:

Write the expression for block shear.

Ru=0.6FuAnv+UbsFuAnt …… (I)

The upper limit of the block shear is,

0.6FyAgv+UbsFuAnt …… (II)

Here, the block shear is Ru, the ultimate stress is Fu, the yield stress is 0.6Fy, the factor for tension stress is Ubs, the gross area along the shear surface is Agv, the net area along the shear surface is Anv and the net area along the tension surface is Ant.

The following figures illustrate the different area of the member employed:

Figure-(2)

Calculation:

Calculate the gross area along the shear surface.

Agv=716in×(112in+3in)=716in×(4.5in)=1.969in2

Calculate the net area along the shear surface.

Anv=716in×(112in+3in)716in(1.5×(78+18)in)=716in×(4.5in)716in(1.5×1in)

Solve further.

Anv=1.969in20.656in2=1.313in2

Calculate the net area along the tension surface
