Hi

Can any one help me on below in MStower software

1. is MS tower calculate bearing capacity of bolt. if yes how can idefine 

2. How to change buckling curve no's for a particular section

3. How to change effective length of a member in particular section

Thanks

  • Bolts are checked for shear on the bolt and bearing on the member using the rules in accordance with Section 8 of the user manual. If any of the dimensions x, y, and z are not specified or set to zero, the checking module assumes that these are equal to or greater than the minimums specified in the code to allow an ultimate bearing strength of 2.0 × (D.T.fy) to be attained.

    What section of BS 5950 are you looking at to access the buckling curve?

    Please refer to page 202 for details of how the effective length is calculated.

    Hi

    For EA 65x65x6 member of 1xM16 bolt grade 8.8 and using 222G code.

    Shear capacity - 54kn and bearing capacity - 44.87kn

    but am getting bolt capacity 54kn in Mstower (this is shear capacity of bolt)

    M16-8  GR8.8 D 16  AS 201  FY 640  FU 800 FV_TIA 360 X 24 Y 35 Z 40

    Can u pl help me on this and also i didn't understand how the software taking curve no's can u please explain
