Effect of Rivet Holes on the Ultimate Strength Developed by 24S-T and Alclad 75S-T Sheet in Incomplete Diagonal Tension

Description: Strength tests were made of a number of 24S-T and Alclad 75S-T aluminum-alloy shear webs to determine the effect of rivet or bolt holes on the shear strength. Data were obtained for webs which approached a condition of pure shear stress as well as for webs with well-developed diagonal tension. The rivet factor, (pitch minus diameter) divided by pitch, was varied from approximately 0.81 to 0.62. These tests indicated that the shear stresses on the gross section were nearly constant for all values of the rivet factor investigated if the other properties of the web were not changed.

Analysis of deep rectangular shear web above buckling load

Description: From Introduction: "An analysis of a square web above the buckling load was presented in reference 1. The analysis of reference 1 therefore was repeated for a shear web with depth/width = 2.5. Comparison of the results with those for the square web then would indicate the effect in the depth-width ratio."

The Influence of the Form of a Wooden Beam on Its Stiffness and Strength 1: Deflection of Beams With Special Reference to Shear Deformations

Description: The purpose of this investigation was to determine to what extent ordinary deflection formulas, which neglect shear deformations, are in error when applied to beams of various sections, and to develop reasonably accurate yet comparatively simple formulas which take into account such deformations. A great many tests were made to determine the amount of shear deformation for beams of various sections tested over many different spans. As the span over which the beam is tested is increased the error introduced by neglecting shear deformations becomes less, and the values obtained by substituting measured deflections in the ordinary formulas approach more nearly the modulus of elasticity in tension and compression.

The Shear of Aluminum Alloy Driven Rivets as Affected by Increasing D/T Ratios

Description: "A decrease in shear strengths for increasing D/t ratios was shown in a previous investigation of protruding-head aluminum alloy rivets in double shear conducted at Aluminum Research Laboratories in 1942. Since single shear joints are more common than double shear joints, it was desirable to extend the investigation to single shear joints. This reports describes the results of this investigation of single shear joints and also includes the results of the previous investigation on double shear joints" (p. 1).

The Critical Shear Load of Rectangular Plates

Description: This report gives formulas for analyzing the critical shear load of a simply supported square, isotropic (simple flat plate), or orthogonal anisotropic plate (a plate in which the rigidity in two directions perpendicular to each other is different, i.e. plywood or corrugated sheet), these formulas, although arrived at by approximation method, seem to agree fairly well with experimental results.

Shear-lag tests of two box beams with corrugated covers loaded to failure

Description: From Summary: "Strain measurements were made on the compression side of two box beams with corrugated aluminum-alloy covers loaded to failure. Angles formed from sheet were used for corner flanges in beam 1; whereas extruded angles were used in beam 2. Failure in each beam occurred in the corner angle at a stress that was above the compressive yield stress for the material."

Cold-formed Steel Framed Shear Wall Sheathed with Corrugated Sheet Steel

Description: Incombustibility is one important advantage of the sheet steel sheathed shear wall over wood panel sheathed shear wall. Compared to shear wall sheathed with plywood and OSB panel, shear wall sheathed with flat sheet steel behaved lower shear strength. Although shear wall sheathed with corrugated sheet steel exhibited high nominal strength and high stiffness, the shear wall usually behaved lower ductility resulting from brittle failure at the connection between the sheathing to frames. This research is aimed at developing modifications on the corrugated sheathing to improve the ductility of the shear wall as well as derive practical response modification factor by establishing correct relationship between ductility factor ? and response modification factor R. Totally 21 monotonic and cyclic full-scale shear wall tests were conducted during the winter break in 2012 by the author in NUCONSTEEL Materials Testing Laboratory in the University of North Texas. The research investigated nineteen 8 ft. × 4 ft. shear walls with 68 mil frames and 27 mil corrugation sheet steel in 11 configurations and two more shear walls sheathed with 6/17-in.OSB and 15/32-in. plywood respectively for comparison. The shear walls, which were in some special cutting arrangement patterns, performed better under lateral load conditions according to the behavior of ductility and shear strength and could be used as lateral system in construction.

Spectrums and diffusion in a round turbulent jet

Description: "In a round turbulent jet at room temperature, measurement of the shear correlation coefficient as a function of frequency (through bandpass filters) has given a rather direct verification of Kolmogoroff's local-isotropy hypothesis. One-dimensional power spectrums of velocity and temperature fluctuations, measured in unheated and heated jets, respectively, have been contrasted. Under the same conditions, the two corresponding transverse correlation functions have been measured and compared" (p. 1).

Ultimate stresses developed by 24S-T and Alclad 75S-T aluminum-alloy sheet in incomplete diagonal tension

Description: "Strength tests were made on 24S-T and Alclad 75S-T aluminum-alloy sheet in diagonal tension. These tests indicated that the ultimate shear stress was essentially independent of the rivet factor if the rivet factor was greater than 0.6, which covers most of the practical range. Curves showing the effect of diagonal tension on the ultimate shear stress in the gross section are presented. These curves supersede those given in NACA TN No. 1364" (p. 1).

Shear Elastic Properties of Some High Strength Nonferrous Metals as Affected by Plastic Deformation and by Heat Treatment

Description: Note presenting a study of the shear elastic properties of monel, nickel, Inconel, and aluminum-model tubing, as influenced by extension of annealed specimens, by cold reduction during manufacture, and by stress-relief annealing of cold-reduced materials. With slight extension of annealed tubing, the shear proof stresses generally decrease, owing to induced internal stress.

Local Isotropy in Turbulent Shear Flow

Description: "The mean strain rate in turbulent shear flow must tend to make the structure anisotropic in all parts of the spectrum. It is argued here, however, that if the spectral energy transfer process destroys orientation, the Kolmogoroff notion of local isotropy can still be justified in spectral regions where the local transfer time is shorter than the characteristics time of the gross shear strain" (p. 1).
