Explanation: Pitch shall not be more than 16t or 200mm, whichever is less in tension member where t is thickness of thinner plate. Pitch shall not be more than 12t or 200mm, whichever is less in compression member, where t is thickness of thinner plate.

## What is the maximum pitch of the bolts for compression and tension members as per IS 800 2007?

Tacking Bolts (IS 800:2007, Clause 10.2. 5.2, page no. 74) ➢ These are the additional bolts provided other than strength consideration. ➢ The maximum pitch of these bolts should be 32t or 300 mm, whichever is less, where t is the thickness of the thinner plate.

## What is minimum pitch and maximum pitch?

The minimum pitch should not be less than 2.5 times the nominal diameter of the rivet. As a thumb rule pitch equal to 3 times the nominal diameter of the rivet is adopted. The maximum pitch shall not exceed 32 times the thickness of the thinner outside plate or 300 mm whichever is less.

## What is the minimum pitch of bolt?

Minimum Pitch = 2.5 times the nominal diameter of bolt.

## What is the minimum pitch you should provide for tacking bolts in compression members?

(1) In compression members the tacking rivets should have a pitch in line not exceeding 32 t or 300 mm. whichever is less. where it is exposed to weather, pitch in line should not exceed 16 t or 200 mm.

## What is the maximum pitch?

Explanation: Pitch shall not be more than 16t or 200mm, whichever is less in tension member where t is thickness of thinner plate. Pitch shall not be more than 12t or 200mm, whichever is less in compression member, where t is thickness of thinner plate.

## What is the minimum pitch as per IS 800?

Pitch is the distance between two adjacent rows of rivet parallel to the direction of application of force. The minimum pitch will be 2.5 times the gross diameter. The minimum pitch should not be less than 2.5 times the nominal diameter of the rivet.

## What is minimum pitch?

Minimum roof pitch is the lowest angle at which a roof can be designed so the roof covering remains watertight. All tiles have a minimum roof pitch, which is established to protect the roof from weather penetration.

## What is the minimum pitch between these bolts as per IS 800 2007 *?

Minimum Pitch = 2.5 times the nominal diameter of bolt.

## Which is not a compression member?

Which of the following is not a compression member? Explanation: Strut, boom and rafter are compression members, whereas tie is a tension member. Explanation: Generally, ISHB sections are used as compression members.

## Which is an ideal section for compression member?

The most important property of the section in a compression member is the radius of gyration and thus the moment of inertia and it can be increased by spreading the material of section away from the axis. An ideal section is one which has the same moment of inertia about any axis through its center of gravity.

## Which of the following is considered as limit state of strength?

Limit states of strength are those associated with failures (or imminent failure), under the action of probable and most unfavorable combination of factored loads, which may endanger the safety of life and property.

## What is pitch distance?

The definition of pitch distance (fixed factor 4), which is the absolute difference between the congruent and the incongruent pitch interval between the tone before the TS and the one before it.

## What is the minimum edge distance for Rolled or planed edge?

The minimum edge distance in member with a rolled edge (for bolted hand cut connection) is approximately. 1.5 × bolt diameter. 1.5 × hole diameter.

## What is the maximum thickness of gusset plate?

Explanation: The thickness of gusset plate in any case should not be less than 12mm. Structurally a gusset plate is subjected to shear stresses, direct stresses and bending stresses and therefore it should be of ample thickness to resist all these at the critical section.

## How do you find the tension capacity of a bolt?

The tensile load a fastener can withstand is determined by the formula P = St x As. To find the tensile strength of a particular bolt, you will need to refer to Mechanical Properties of Externally Threaded Fasteners chart in the Fastenal Technical Reference Guide.
