Introduction Tension members may consist of round bars, wire cables, plates, and rolled sections. End connections may consist of threaded ends, eyebars, pinned, bolted, and welded connections. Two limit states govern the design of tension members. These are the limit state of yielding and the limit state of rupture. The limit state of yielding applies to failure on the gross cross-sectional area of the member. Yielding of a member may result in excessive elongation and lead to instability of the whole structure. The limit state of rupture applies to failure on the net cross-…
