Tension members, Civil Engineering

Tension Members:

You have learnt about the Standard specification for structural steel and various types of structural steel rolled sections. Different types of loads, stresses caused by loads and various kinds of permissible stresses in steel have been described. Design of tension members is elaborates in detail by covering all important aspects like description of types of members, permissible stresses, calculation of net effective area, lug angle connection etc. Instances, related to various concepts discussed in the unit, have been solved for your better understanding of these concepts.
