Abstract

The competition in the field of storage racking structures is so that companies are always looking for new structural solutions aiming at containing construction time and expenses. This paper focuses the bearing failure of shear joint using long bolts through thin tubular members with the purpose to check the reliability of Eurocode 3 formulation. The used hollow sections are free to buckle inward leading to a bearing resistance lower than the one predicted using EC3. In fact EC3 does not account for the possible occurrence of out-of-plane deformations in shear connection assuming that the connected plates are restrained by the bolt head and the nut. In order to investigate this phenomenon, an experimental campaign has been developed, a FE model Abaqus/CAE has been validated and a parametric study has been performed. The present paper introduces the conducted investigations.
