Abstract

It is commonly known that branch plate joints to hollow structural section members possess relatively low design resistances as the branch plate connects to the highly flexible hollow section face. To enhance the performance of branch plate joints to hollow section members, the hollow section can be slotted and the plate passed through the hollow section, thereby allowing the plate to connect to two sides of the member. Recently, an experimental study of 12 branch and through plate joints to circular (CHS) and elliptical hollow sections (EHS) has been carried out.The tested joints varied in the orientation of the plate aswell as the orientation of the elliptical hollow section. By testing both branch and through plate joints of each variation, the additional gain in strength due to the through plate could be quantified.
