|Title:||Moment Connections for Vierendeel Trusses of Square Hollow Structural Sections|
|Keywords:||Vierendeel Trusses;moment connections;analytical evaluation;structural selections|
|Abstract:||<p> A research programme is presented for the analytical. evaluation of the deflections of Vierendeel trusses comprised of semi-rigid connections under panel feint loadings. The semi-rigid connections are made of two unequal width square ESS members welded at right angles. As the flexibility of the joints increases when the width ratio is less than 1.0, the joints are unable to develop the moment capacity of the web member and excessive deflections limit functional capability of the truss. Hence, several types of joint reinforcement are recommended. A yield line method is attempted to estimate the strength capacity of the joint with and without reinforcements. In addition, a plate analysis forms the basis for estimating elastic joint stiffness for evaluating anticipated deflections at mid span. </p>|
