connecting hollow structural section members with
Structural hollow (closed) sections of circular, visually exposed and concealed bracing but the tension that can be developed in the tie is limited by bending of the connecting ring. Square hollow section members used in X-bracing in a 10 storey residential building. In the K and V-braced forms, the members
SPECIFICATION FOR THE DESIGN OF STEEL HOLWW STRUCTURAL SECTIONS 1.1. SCOPE Specification for the Design of Steel Hollow Structural Sections Apnl 15. 1997 This Specification is intended for the design of round and rectangular hollow structural sections (HSS) that are used as s!ructural members in buildings and the design of connections to HSS. Steel Design Guide2 / HOLLOW STRUCTURAL SECTION CONNECTIONS / AISC DESIGN GUIDE 24 It should also be noted that very large diameter tubular sec-tions are available to American Petroleum Institute (API) specifications; many different grades are available, and speci-fied outside diameters range from 0.405 in. to 84 in. (API, 2007).
Connecting Hollow Structural Section Members with Through-Bolts. By Jason McCormick. Associate Professor, Civil & Environmental Engineering, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. Bolting steel members is often desirable because of ease of erection and the reliability of the joint. However, direct fastening to the wall of a hollow structural section (HSS) member poses a challenge due to
