AbstractMulti-planar tubular joints became widely used in steel structures especially in industrial and offshore project. However, the current design procedures are still not accurate enough and depend on studying each plan separately and adjust the joint capacity using some correction factors. The aim of this research is to present a mathematical formula to calculate the capacity of symmetrically loaded multi-planar KK joint. A verified ANSYS model was used to generate 172 records for parametric study with different geometry, member sections and material properties. The general mode of failure was found to be chord bending (buckling) at the intersection area between the chord and the braces The outputs of the parametric study were analyzed using (GRG) “Generalized Reduced Gradient” (a nonlinear mathematical solving technique depends on changing the values of the considered variables gradually while monitoring the governing conditions until the partial derivatives of the target function equals zero) to develop the final formula. The developed formula consists of two equations based on failure mode. The results of the developed formula were compared with experimental test results and showed average accuracy of 92.5%. |
