ROQUETE, Lucas; SARMANHO, Arlene Maria Cunha; MAZON, Ana Amélia Oliveira  e  REQUENA, João Alberto Venegas. Influence of shear lag coefficienton circular hollow sections with bolted sleeve connections. REM, Int. Eng. J. [online]. 2017, vol.70, n.4, pp.393-398. ISSN 2448-167X.

The circular hollow sections (CHS) are being widely employed in steel structures around the world, increasing the development of new researches. This article proposes an innovative connection model for circular hollow sections that facilitates and reduces the assembly cost of hollow section structures. The proposed connection is a tube sleeve, used to splice two tubes, composed of an inner tube with a diameter smaller than the connecting tubes, which is connected to the outer tubes by bolts passing through both tubes. This connection can be a cheaper and easier alternative to flange connections, which are widely used in large span tubular trusses. The connection was tested in laboratory under tension loading. The tests made it possible to identify the influence of stress distribution on tubes and the need for the use of a shear lag coefficient. The results of the ultimate load capacity demonstrated the viability of the tube sleeve connection use.
