Date of Defense 1995-09-05 Availability restricted AbstractSophisticated design techniques such as partially restrained connections need
detail information on the load-deformation response of bolted connections. The behavior
of single bolt, single shear connections are studied. Seventy tests with different
configurations were conducted to evaluate their failure mechanisms and load-deformation
characteristics. Comparisons to previous study were made. A new analytical model for
the determination of load-deformation response of bolted connections was presented as
well as a new Unified Design Curves approach for design purposes. It has been proven
that this generalized method can be used efficiently.
