The authors have investigated about the structural behavior of a wooden single-layer space frame structure with the bolted joints. We have carried out a buckling tests of a wooden single-layer...

AWS versus AIJ Tubular K-Connection Design Rules
Among various existing design rules for circular tubular connections, the AWS rules are compared with the AIJ rules because of differences between the two. Subjects of discussion include...

Discrete Field Stability Analysis of X-Braced Lattices
The three-dimensional X-braced lattice is used as a compression member in structures ranging from the long span roof of buildings to radio and television antennas. In such cases the design...

Effect of Joint Rigidity on Buckling Strength of Single Layer Lattice Domes
The present paper discusses the effect of the joint rigidity on the buckling strength of single layer lattice domes, with regular three way grids, under vertical loading. The effect of...

Experimental Study on the Buckling Behavior of a Triodetic Aluminum Space Frame: No. 2 Ultimate Bearing Strength of a Single Layer Space Frame

Collapse Behavior of Double-Layer Space Truss Grids with Member Buckling
The results of collapse tests of over twenty space truss grids with elastic buckling of members are reviewed. The space truss grids include three types, that is, square-on-square, square-on-diagonal...

Elasto-Plastic Buckling Design for Shallow Cylindrical Shells under External Pressure
Pressures providing elastic-plastic buckling conditions for thin shallow cylindrical shell panels are presented. Classical simple support boundary conditions have been adopted for the...

Flange Local Buckling and Behavior of I-Sections
A simple kinematic model is proposed to determine the locally buckled shape of the compressive flange plate of I-sections subjected to pure bending or bending combined with axial thrust....

Metal Truss Plates: Less than Full-Depth Penetration and Shear Buckling
This paper presents the results of two experimental studies on metal truss plates which are used to join members of wood trusses. The first study investigated the effect that less than...

Design of Lateral Steel in Columns
Lateral steel in columns is generally required for shear resistance, confinement of concrete and prevention of buckling of longitudinal bars. This paper is limited to the design of lateral...

Local Web Crippling of Unstiffened Multi-Cell Box Sections
Full-scale experiments and analyses show that the AISC/LRFD design equations for web yielding and web crippling strength of unstiffened webs, developed from test data on I sections, can...
