Abstract

This investigation is a study of the stress distribution in eyebars subjected to tensile forces applied through a pin that completely fills the hole. The effects of loading through the pin and the pin fit conditions on the strength of the member are considered. It is concluded that there is no significant difference between theoretically calculated stress concentration factors and those actually measured in a bridge eyebar. The role of the stress concentration factor in affecting the ultimate strength and fatigue behavior of eyebars is discussed when comparisons are made with data on similar members.
