Abstract:
Tension and Compression force deformation data from laboratory tests of angle segments are used to generate moment rotation curves for the following bolted partially restrained connections: (1) top and seat angle, (2) double web angle, and (3) top and seat angle with double web angles. The force deformation and moment rotation curves are analytically described by a four parameter formula which provides the basis for the analytical connection model. These connection models consist of rigid bars and nonlinear springs representing the angle segments in either tension or compression. Design curves giving the four parameters of the moment rotation curves are generated for the double web angle connection. These parameters are primarily a function of the angle thickness, gage length of the angle legs in flexture, and the number of bolts in the connection. Comparisons of derived moment rotation curves are made with published results of full scale tests.
