MODELLING AND PREDICTION OF STEEL BOLTED CONNECTION BEHAVIOR

The complicated geometry, support conditions, loading sequence and applications, and material properties of steel connections fabricated with high-strength, pretensioned bolts, have been modelled by finite element techniques. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional models and programs have been developed and used in parameter studies on three different types of connections. Prediction equations for connection behavior have been determined from the data generated. This paper presents the general methodology and unique features of the studies. (TRRL)
