Poologanathan, Keerthan, Mahendran, Mahen, & Wanniarachchi, Somadasa (2016) Shear tests of rivet fastened rectangular hollow flange channel beams with web openings. In International Colloquium on Stability and Ductility of Steel Structures, 30 May – 01 June 2016, Timisoara, Romania.

Abstract

The rivet-fastened rectangular hollow flange channel beam (RHFCB) is a new cold-formed hollow section proposed as an alternative to welded hollow flange steel beams. No research has been undertaken on the shear behaviour and strength of rivet fastened RHFCBs with web openings. Hence a detailed experimental study involving 30 shear tests was undertaken to investigate the shear behaviour and strength of rivet fastened RHFCBs with web openings. Experimental results showed that the current design rules are inadequate for the shear design of Rivet fastened RHFCBs with web openings. Improved design equations have been proposed for the shear strength of rivet fastened RHFCBs with web openings.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
