8D.D.8 Design Parameters
|Parameter Name||Default Value||Description|
This parameter indicates whether user has defined the net section factor or the program will calculate it.
This parameter indicates how the pair of angles are connected to each other. This is required to find whether the angle is in single or double shear and the net section factor.
|DBL||12 mm||Diameter of bolt for calculation of number of bolts and net section factor.|
|DMAX||100.0 cm.||Maximum allowable depth.|
|DMIN||0.0 cm.||Minimum allowable depth.|
|ELA||1.0||This parameter indicates what type of end conditions is to be used. Refer to 8D.D.3 Stability Requirements.|
|FVB||218 MPA||Allowable shear stress in bolt|
|FYB||436 MPA||Allowable bearing stress in bolt|
|FYLD||250 MPA||Yield Strength of steel|
Thickness of gusset plate.
Minimum of the thicknesses of the gusset plate and the leg is used for calculation of the capacity of bolt in bearing
|KY||1.0||K value in local y-axis. Usually, this is minor axis.|
|KZ||1.0||K value in local z-axis. Usually, this is major axis.|
This parameter is meant for plain angles.
|LY||Member Length||Unbraced length in local z-axis to calculate slenderness ratio.|
|LZ||Member Length||Unbraced length in local z-axis to calculate slenderness ratio.|
Type of member to find allowable Kl/r for slenderness calculations for members.
Any value greater than 10.0 indicates user defined allowable KL/r ratio. For this case KY and KZ values are must to find actual KL/r ratio of the member.
|NSF||1.0||Net section factor for tension members|
Deduction for holes.
Default value is one bolt width plus 1.5 mm. If the area of holes cut by any straight, diagonal or zigzag line across the member is different from the default value, this parameter is to be defined.
