Title:Effects of inelastic action on resistance to various types of loads; eccentrically loaded tension members having angle and T sections of ductile members made from various classes of metals part 1

Abstract:This paper presents the results of an analytical and experimental investigation for the determination of the load necessary to produce any given depth of yielding in angle- and T-section members subjected to eccentric tensile loading. This load is found analytically from the intersection of a constant depth of yielding interaction curve and a moment-load curve. General load and moment expressions used in the construction of the interaction curves were derived for cross-sections composed of rectangular elements. The primary assumption in these derivations was that for small inelastic strains the stress-strain diagrams of the material could be represented by two straight lines. The moment-load expressions were derived on the assumption that each eccentrically loaded member deformed into a segment of a circle. In the experimental investigation eccentric load tests were made on angle- and T-section members made from various classes of materials. The three materials used were S.A.E. 4340 alloy steel, type 304 stainless steel, and 7075-T6 aluminum alloy. The angle-section members were tested with the principal axes orientated in three different positions with respect to the loading plane. In general the results of these tests corroborated the theoretical analyses. It was found that deviations from the theory could be explained by variations in the stress-strain properties of the material. Supplementary tests were performed to determine the effect of pure bending loading and the effect of time on the inelastic behavior under sustained and alternating load schedules. Pure bending test results indicated that the theory proposed was conservative in the majority of cases. The results of the sustained and alternating load tests indicated that time was not an important variable so long as the material properties used in the analysis were obtained from specimens subjected to loading schedules similar to those used in testing the eccentrically loaded member.
