STUDIES OF CONNECTIONS IN RECTANGULAR HOLLOW PROFILES MADE OF ST 37 AND ST 52

UNTERSUCHUNGEN AN VERBINDUNGEN AN RECHTECK-HOHLPROFILEN AUS WERKSTOFF ST 37 UND ST 52

FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF STRUCTURAL STANDARDS IN THE FIELD OF CONSTRUCTION ENGINEERING INVOLVING RECTANGULAR HOLLOW PROFILES WITH REGARD TO LOADING SAFETY AND BUILDING ECONOMY ASPECTS. THE TESTS ARE CARRIED OUT IN A SPECIAL TEST INSTALLATION ON WELDED JOINTS OF RECTANGULAR HOLLOW PROFILES USING DIMENSIONS NORMALLY FOUND IN PRACTICE (MATERIAL ST 37 AND ST 52), AND IN THIS WAY EXPANSIONS AND DEFORMATIONS FOR CHARACTERISING THE STRENGTH AND DEFORMATION BEHAVIOUR ARE MEASURED.
