    Significance and Use

    5.1 This test method provides a procedure for testing to determine the ultimate strength in compression of bolted longitudinal seams with lapped connections in deep corrugated structural plate. This test method is applicable to variable length longitudinal seams with circumferential seams between adjacent plates.

    Note 1: The testing is intended for bolted longitudinal seams in plate with the following corrugation sizes in Practice A796/A796M: 15 in. by 5.5. in. (Practice A796/A796M Tables 34 and 35), 20 in. by 9.5 in. (Practice A796/A796M Tables 36 and 37), and 16 in. by 6 in. (Practice A796/A796M Table 38 and 39).

    5.2 The maximum load achieved in this testing, along with normalization procedures in this test method, are used to establish values for ultimate strength of bolted structural plate longitudinal seams for design in accordance with Practice A796/A796M.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method provides a comprehensive method for determining the seam strength for bolted longitudinal lapped seams in deep corrugated structural steel plate. The test method includes a laboratory test procedure which specifies specimen preparation, test equipment, and data collection. The test method also includes a method to calculate seam strength from the test results. This standard test method is applicable to corrugated steel structures with ultimate strength of bolted seams provided in Practice A796/A796M.

    1.2 Units—The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
