ABSTRACT:

The tests and finite element analysis were performed to study the influence of slip on static performance of slideable all-bolted connection of truss to square steel tube column. The ultimate bearing capacity, anti-slide capacity, failure mode and failure mechanism of the connection were obtained by test and finite element analysis. The results show that the connection has higher anti-slide and ultimate bearing capacity, and the diameter and type of bolt hole have little effect on the ultimate bearing capacity. The results were compared with the seismic performance of the same connection. The comparisons show that the anti-slide capacity under static load are larger than that under seismic load, because the bolt tension has some lost under cyclic load, but the ultimate bearing capacity is almost same. The results were compared with the static performance of welded connection, bolted-welded connection, all-bolted rigid connection. The comparisons show that the slideable all-bolted connection has largest ductility, the ultimate bearing capacity is basically equal to the welded connection, but anti-slide capacity is lower, the stiffness is almost same before slide.
