DEVELOPMENT OF EFFICIENT, ROBUST AND ARCHITECTURALLY-FLEXIBLE STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS USING INNOVATIVE BLIND-BOLTED CONNECTIONS

Abstract

The aim of the proposed project is to develop structural systems that have sufficient stiffness, strength, and ductility to withstand code-specified loads and that will be competitive in the marketplace. The development of demonstrable cost-effective structural systems is essential if these types of systems are to be widely adopted in practice, thus allowing Australian manufacturers of blind bolts and steel tubes to achieve a greater market share.
