PROBLEMS OF HIGH STRENGTH BOLTED CONNECTIONS IN STEEL CONSTRUCTION. SUMMARISED CONTENTS OF REPORTS NOS. 1-7

In this Final Report on ORE Question D 90, the programme of work, the preparations, the execution and results of the ORE tests from 7 interim reports and similar studies by other bodies are summarized and evaluated in conclusions and recommendations. The studies referred to: (1) effect of methods of preparing faying surfaces; (2) effect of the protection of faying surfaces on the coefficient of friction; (3) effect of weathering exposure before and after assembly on the coefficient of friction of protected and unprotected faying surfaces; (4) effect of sustained static loading and temperature variations on the behavior of connections; (5) effect of dynamic loads on the behavior of connections (fatigue tests); and (6) protection of bolts, nuts and washers.
