Thermoelastic Stress Analysis of T-Stub Model
Thermoelastic Stress Analysis (TSA) has been used to obtain the stress field in bolted T-Stub joint models (as defined by Eurocode 3) subject to cyclic loading which were employed to validate a Finite Element (FE) model. It was concluded from the results of the experiments and modeling that the behavior of the T-Stub is more complex than claimed by Eurocode due to contact forces, bolt interaction and plastic behavior.
