Abstract:

Results for monobloc specimens, butt joints, and lap joint indicate that specimens with idle rivets have higher fatigue strengths than those with open holes; symmetrical joints have high fatigue strengths; joints with tightly drawn bolts or flush head rivets have higher fatigue strengths than joints with protruding head rivets; manner in which current ASCE design specifications can be improved.
