Abstract:The test data reported herein deals with the fundamental behavior of several large structural truss-type connections consisting of 1/2-in. gusset plates and 18-in. I-beams, fabricated with either rivets or high strength steel bolts. Of the three specimens tested, one was fastened with hotdriven rivets while the other two were bolted. One of the bolted specimens was assembled with hardened beveled washers against the sloping faces of the I-beam flanges to provide parallel bearing faces for the bolts; the other was fastened using only hardened flat washers. A study of the load-slip and load-strain behavior is made for the three specimens and fundamental differences in their behaviors are pointed out. The distribution of stresses across the critical sections in the webs of the members is analyzed for all stages of the tests to determine what portion of the load on each specimen was resisted by the web. This makes it possible to determine the efficiency of the web and the flanges in resisting the loads applied to the members.
