For designing steel structures, design of connection plates and bolts and welding are essential part.Normally, in pre-engineered or conventional steel building, we have to assemble structural steel members at site, so we have to fabricate column and rafter separately at workshop providing connection plate at the face of rafter and rafter. These connection plates have appropriate holes for bolts.Column and rafter are assembled at site by tightening bolts. Therefore, as a structural engineer, we have to design the the thickness of connection plates, size of plates having number of bolts with diameter.
Please download here the excel sheet for the connection plate & bolt between rafter to rafter as per IS:800(2007).
