This is also an advantage for moment sensitive columns. Shop weld is usually more economical than using bolts. That is the The disadvantage of end plate connection is its accuracy advantage of b and c comparing with a. The tolerance of bolt connections is only 2mm. Stiemer edge to avoid high stress. The bolts in c are double sheared which Although seated beam shear connections are designed to support is an economical way of using bolts as mentioned before.

However, vertical loads only, eccentricities produced by these connections the bottom flange of the beam has to be coped as shown to allow may be greater than by simple framed shear connections and can the beam to drop in.

This cope also reduces the capacity of the influence the design of supporting members. The seat angle can be stiffened as shown in a or unstiffened as All these factor may lead c to an uneconomical connection.

The unstiffened angle seat consists of a relatively thick angle either shop-welded or bolted to the column. When the B. Seated connections supporting member is a column web, access for welding may be Fig.

Load capacity of an unstiffened angle seat is limited by seated connections the angle thickness. This capacity can be increased by stiffening B. Beam seated on top of column. If shown in c are usually more economical. The bolts are selected The seated beam must be stabilized laterally with a flexible clip to be compatible with the size of the beam and the column. At the angle attached either to the top flange of the beam as shown in a top of the column, the cap plate is provided simply as a practical and b or to the beam web near the top of the beam as shown in convenience to assist in the connection between the beam and the c.

The clip angle must be thin enough to permit end rotation of column. The length of the cap plate is selected to provide sufficient the beam. Either welds or bolts can be used to connect the clip space for bolting to underside of the beam, and the plate is of angle to the beam and the column. When welds are used, the fillet nominal thickness.

However, when checking the bearing resistance welds should be located along the toes of the angle. Connections transferring moment has to be checked to resist the bending moment caused by the When a connection is designed to transfer moment, the flanges of uniformly distributed bearing force transferred from the beam. The moment is c is usually used when the column is located against a wall, so transferred by the pair of tension and compression forces in the top the beam is not allowed to stick out too much out of the column.

It should be noted that usually moment connections transfer shear force as well, so the web of the B. Seat angle connection and built-up tee-stub seated beam is also connected to the column.

Seat angle connections and built-up tee-stub seated connection are usually used at floor level to connecting beams to the column a and b are connections with bolted flanges and shear tab bolted while the column continues to upper floor as shown in Fig.

The beam flanges are bolted to plates to transfer tension and compression force which composing moment. Stiemer moment plates are spaced to accommodate rolling tolerances for 3. Materials used in bolted beam-column beam depth and flange tilt, and nominal shims are provided to fill connections any significant gap.

Minor gaps are closed by the action of bolting. Bolt with groove weld. The beam flanges are shop prepared with There are three kinds of bolts used in steel construction in Canada.

Shear capacity is developed by web framing plate. Other specifications A and A, and common bolts manufactured types of shear transferring methods such as seat angle or web under ASTM A The A and A bolts are structural bolts framing angle can also be used. The shear connection also acts as and can be used for any building application. A bolts, which construction support while the field welds are made. Actually this were referred to previously as common bolts, are also variously connection should be considered as a welded connection which is called machine bolts, ordinary bolts, and unfinished bolts.

The use beyond this paper. Only high-strength structural bolts A column, and field-bolted to the beam near a point of contra flexure.

An end-plate connection is shown but lapping splice plates for the Structural bolts can be installed pretensioned or snug tight. This approximately equal to 70 percent of its tensile strength is connection avoids field welds and also avoids using a lot of bolts produced in the bolt. Snug-tight is the condition that exists when and thick plates to transfer the significant tension and compression all plies are in contact.

It can be attained by a few impacts of an forces in the flanges. The disadvantage is that the contra flexure impact wrench or the full effort of a person using an ordinary spud point is usually not certain. If the assumed contra flexure point is wrench. Pretensioned bolts are usually used in slip-critical too far away from the real one, the actual moment will be less than connections or when the bolts are carrying tensile cyclic loading. The end plate distributes flange forces Structural bolts are available in many sizes in both imperial and over a greater length of column web than a fully welded joint, but metric series.

Stiffeners can be used as shown imperial series and from 16mm to 36mm in metric series. Most to reduce the prying action. Shop and erection equipment is generally set up for these sizes, and workers are familiar with them.

Design of bolted beam-column connections Bolt capacity of force resistance needs to be calculated in most of the connections except some seated connections as shown in The general procedure of bolted beam-column connection design is: Fig. Determine the factored load to be transferred by the connection. This item out the most severe effect.

Choose connection type All of Fig. For bolts subject to shear or tension, shall be taken as 0. Beam and column profiles. The factored resistance developed by a bolted joint subjected to shear shall be taken as the lesser of Aesthetics. When the bolt threads are intercepted by any shear plane, the factored shear resistance of any joint shall be taken as 0.

The shearing resistance of the bolts shall be taken as 1. Without special precautions, thickness less than c. Bolts in Combined Shear and Tension. For practical reasons, it is suggested that bearing-type shear connections be designed on Fig. The total 8 blots resist shear force and the 4 material and detailing for minimum bolt stick-through the nuts bolts adjacent to the top flange of the beam also arise tensile force are expected.

Special condition of shear tab connections When bolts are supposed to resist eccentric moment, like the bolts on column flange in Fig. The first is the stiffness of the supporting member. Shear tabs on flexible supports have larger bolt Code citation eccentricity, and therefore lower resistances, than do those on rigid supports.

For rigid supports, such as columns, A bolt in a joint that is required to develop resistance to both efficiency in terms of capacity per bolt is a maximum for four bolts tension and shear shall be proportioned so that because the effective eccentricity is zero. Clause The most commonly used weld is the fillet.

Use of plug and slot welds generally is limited to longitudinal weld and 90o for a transverse weld. Shop welds are usually more economical than bolts. Groove welds should be used in the Matching Electrodes moment connections at beam flanges locations as shown in Fig. The factored tensile resistance shall be taken as that of the base to obtain full strength of the beam.

If the weld is not to be ground, however, that part of the symbol is usually omitted. When grinding is required, it must be indicated in the symbol: The root-opening size for a groove weld is written in within the symbol indicating the type of weld. For example, a in root opening for a square-groove weld with a backing bar is specified by Downloaded from Digital Engineering Library McGraw-Hill www.

Fasteners and Welds for Structural Connections 24 Chapter One Note that the M in the backing bar symbol indicates that the material to be used for backing is specified. A in root opening for a bevel weld, not to be ground, is indicated by In this and other types of unsymmetrical welds, the arrow not only designates the arrow side of the joint but also points to the side to be shaped for the groove weld.

When the arrow has this significance, the intention often is emphasized by an extra break in the arrow. The angle at which the material is to be beveled should be indicated with the root opening: A double-bevel weld is specified by A single-V weld is represented by A double-V weld is indicated by Downloaded from Digital Engineering Library McGraw-Hill www.

Fasteners and Welds for Structural Connections Fasteners and Welds for Structural Connections 25 In preparing a weld symbol, insert size, weld-type symbol, length of weld, and spacing, in that order from left to right. The perpendicular leg of the symbol for fillet, bevel, J, and flare-bevel welds should be on the left of the symbol.

Bear in mind also that arrow-side and otherside welds are the same size unless otherwise noted.

When billing of detail material discloses the identity of the far side with the near side, the welding shown for the near side also will be duplicated on the far side. Symbols apply between abrupt changes in direction of welding unless governed by the all-around symbol or dimensioning shown. Where groove preparation is not symmetrical and complete, additional information should be given on the symbol. Also it may be necessary to give weld-penetration information, as in Fig.

For the weld shown, penetration from either side must be a minimum of in. The second side should be back-gouged before the weld there is made. Welds also may be a combination of different groove and fillet welds. While symbols can be developed for these, designers will save time by supplying a sketch or enlarged cross section. It is important to convey the required information accurately and completely to the workers who will do the job. Matching electrodes are given in AWS D1.

The basic welding positions are as follows: Flat with the face of the weld nearly horizontal. The electrode is nearly vertical, and welding is performed from above the joint.

Horizontal with the axis of the weld horizontal. For groove welds, the face of the weld is nearly vertical. For fillet welds, the face of Figure 1. Penetration must be at least in. Second side must be back-gouged before the weld on that side is made. Fasteners and Welds for Structural Connections 26 Chapter One the weld usually is about 45 relative to horizontal and vertical surfaces.

Vertical with the axis of the weld nearly vertical. Welds are made upward. Overhead with the face of the weld nearly horizontal. The electrode is nearly vertical, and welding is performed from below the joint.

Where possible, welds should be made in the flat position. Weld metal can be deposited faster and more easily and generally the best and most economical welds are obtained.

In a shop, the work usually is positioned to allow flat or horizontal welding. With care in design, the expense of this positioning can be kept to a minimum. In the field, vertical and overhead welding sometimes may be necessary. The best assurance of good welds in these positions is use of proper electrodes by experienced welders. Single-pass fillet welds may be made in the flat or the horizontal position in sizes up to 5 16 in with a single electrode and up to 12 in with multiple electrodes.

Other positions are prohibited. When groove-welded joints can be welded in the flat position, submerged-arc and gas metal-arc processes usually are more economical than the manual shielded metal-arc process. Designers and detailers should detail connections to ensure that welders have ample space for positioning and manipulating electrodes and for observing the operation with a protective hood in place.

Electrodes may be up to 18 in long and 38 in in diameter. In addition, adequate space must be provided for deposition of the required size of the fillet weld.

For example, to provide an adequate landing c, in, for the fillet weld of size D, in, in Fig. Welding should not be permitted under any of the following conditions: Figure 1. Fasteners and Welds for Structural Connections Fasteners and Welds for Structural Connections 27 When the ambient temperature is below 0F When surfaces are wet or exposed to rain, snow, or high wind When welders are exposed to inclement conditions Surfaces and edges to be welded should be free from fins, tears, cracks, and other defects.

Also, surfaces at and near welds should be free from loose scale, slag, rust, grease, moisture, and other material that may prevent proper welding. AWS specifications, however, permit mill scale that withstands vigorous wire brushing, a light film of drying oil, or antispatter compound to remain.

But the specifications require all mill scale to be removed from surfaces on which flange-to-web welds are to be made by submerged-arc welding or shielded metal-arc welding with low-hydrogen electrodes.

Parts to be fillet-welded should be in close contact. The gap between parts should not exceed in. If it is more than in, the fillet weld size should be increased by the amount of separation. The separation between faying surfaces for plug and slot welds and for butt joints landing on a backing should not exceed in.

Parts to be joined at butt joints should be carefully aligned. Where the parts are effectively restrained against bending due to eccentricity in alignment, an offset not exceeding 10 percent of the thickness of the thinner part joined, but in no case more than 18 in, is permitted as a departure from theoretical alignment.

When correcting misalignment in such cases, the parts should not be drawn in to a greater slope than 12 in in 12 in. For permissible welding positions, see Sec 1. Work should be positioned for flat welding whenever practicable. In general, welding procedures and sequences should avoid needless distortion and should minimize shrinkage stresses. As welding progresses, welds should be deposited so as to balance the applied heat. Welding of a member should progress from points where parts are relatively fixed in position toward points where parts have greater relative freedom of movement.

Where it is impossible to avoid high residual stresses in the closing welds of a rigid assembly, these welds should be made in compression elements. Joints expected to have significant shrinkage should be welded before joints expected to have lesser shrinkage, and restraint should be kept to a minimum.

If severe external restraint against shrinkage is present, welding should be carried continuously to completion or to a point that will ensure freedom from cracking before the joint is allowed to cool below the minimum specified preheat and interpass temperatures.

In shop fabrication of cover-plated beams and built-up members, each component requiring splices should be spliced before it is welded to other parts of the member. Up to three subsections may be spliced to form a long girder or girder section.

Possible causes are shrinkage of weld and heat-affected zone, austenite-martensite transformation, and entrapped hydrogen. Preheating the base metal can eliminate the first two causes. Preheating reduces the temperature gradient between weld and adjacent base metal, thus decreasing the cooling rate and resulting stresses. Also, if hydrogen is present, preheating allows more time for this gas to escape. Use of low-hydrogen electrodes, with suitable moisture control, is also advantageous in controlling hydrogen content.

High cooling rates occur at arc strikes that do not deposit weld metal. Hence strikes outside the area of permanent welds should be avoided. Cracks or blemishes resulting from arc strikes should be ground to a smooth contour and checked for soundness. To avoid cracks and for other reasons, AWS specifications require that under certain conditions, before a weld is made the base metal must be preheated. Table 1. When the base-metal temperature is below 32F, the base metal shall be preheated to at least 70F and the minimum interpass temperature shall be maintained during welding.

Toolkit Thomas Sputo, Ph.D., P.E.

The heat input limitations of AWS D1. The table recognizes that as plate thickness, carbon content, or alloy content increases, higher preheats are necessary to lower cooling rates and to avoid microcracks or brittle heat-affected zones. Preheating should bring to the specified preheat temperature the surface of the base metal within a distance equal to the thickness of the part being welded, but not less than 3 in of the point of welding.

This temperature should be maintained as a minimum interpass temperature while welding progresses. Preheat and interpass temperatures should be sufficient to prevent crack formation. Temperatures above the minimums in Table 1.

Peening sometimes is used on intermediate weld layers for control of shrinkage stresses in thick welds to prevent cracking.

It should be done with a round-nose tool and light blows from a power hammer after the weld has cooled to a temperature warm to the hand. The root or surface layer of the weld or the base metal at the edges of the weld should not be peened. Care should be taken to prevent scaling or flaking of weld and base metal from overpeening. When required by plans and specifications, welded assemblies should be stress-relieved by heat treating.

See AWS D1. Finish machining should be done after stress relieving. Tack and other temporary welds are subject to the same quality requirements as final welds.See also Example of visualizing the Excel connection design process page 64 Excel spreadsheets in connection design 64 Example of visualizing the Excel connection design process. A rigid support is typically connected to the cen- ter of a column flange on the supporting side if the support.

If the welds are to be staggered on the arrow and other sides, they can be shown as Usually, intermittent welds are started and finished with a weld at least twice as long as the length of the stitch welds.

Seat angle is bolted to the main part and welded to the secondary part. A short curved line below a square-groove symbol indicates weld contour. Seat angle The purpose of seat angles is to carry loads from the secondary part. These techniques include handling of electrodes and fluxes.
