Block Shear Failure in a Steel Angle Tension Member – A Review of Design Practic

Date of Publication :8th March 2017

Abstract: Equations of block shear capacity vary significantly in various standards of steel structure design. A study has been conducted to examine the design equations according to standards from India, America, Europe, Canada, and Japan, as well as proposed improved equations for block shear capacity of tension member. To evaluate these standards and proposed improved equations, available test results for block shear failures in tension member are used. For tension member Indian standard, Eurocode, Japan Standard and Canadian standard are significantly conservative, however American Standard provides a good prediction of block shear capacity.
