  1. This is a non exam question, but this is a design connection problem I have seen and would like to get a better grasp of- are any structural engineers here familiar with slip connections to deal with partition deflection? I have seen them with the top track (see image) directly to the underside of ceiling. Have you seen any with connections that may not but up directly against the ceiling? How does one detail a deflection connection for a sloped roof condition? My thought is you cannot have the track up against ceiling?
  2. This is great- thanks!! @MA_PE

    Which type of open web truss series
  4. MA_PE, Thanks for your quick reply! Can you explain this in simpler terms to me? Thank you again!
  5. Does anyone have thoughts on this question?
  6. Thank you @Hemi79! I would love to hear others' thoughts on this as well. My guesses are: bolt diameter, stress of bolt, and thickness. One of my textbooks says strength of connected parts can also help define.

    Awesome, thank you! @youngmotivatedengineer

    I did do some research on this and am simply confirming!
  9. Let me be more specific, if you could kindly review, I would appreciate the help! Of these factors, which is important in determining connectors used, in minimizing shear stress? shank length stress of bolt diameter of bolt duration of load thickness of material finish of bolt

    This is all that was given! I’m sorry it’s so bare, just looking for guidance on my solution. I have to solve for that force.

    Understood, thanks!
