Abstract

The results of a series of tests on bolted connections using high-strength steel (HSS) as a base material are presented and analyzed in this report. The base material used was HSF 640 which has a yield stress of 640 MPa. The tests studied bearing resistance, net section failure and the block shear failure mode. The test results have been analysed according to the Finnish specification for steel structures B7, the Swedish specification BSK, the NKB-specif-cation and according to the Eurocode 3. The block shear failure mode has been analysed according to the american LRFD-specification. The aim of this study has been to provide experimental test results to allow the development of reliable calculation methods for connections using HSS steels in different types of steel structures.
