Design Of Hollow Section Overlap Joints With The Reinforcing Rib Plate. Welded Connection Resistance

Open access

Abstract

In calculating the resistance of welds within the connections between hollow sections in EN 1993-1-8, very general information is given without presenting specific calculations. The chief recommendations indicate that the resistance of the welds connecting the wall to the second element should not be less than the resistance of the cross section of the wall. In addition, assessment of the welds’ resistance based on the effective lengths is viable in cases when forces in the braces are smaller than the resistance of the joint, though the detailed method was not specified. The objective of this paper is to present the most up-to-date information about the design of overlap welded joints with a reinforcing rib plate.
