Abstract

This paper presents the results of an experimental study on the behaviour of plate trunnions subjected to shear loads. The computational study and design considerations for plate trunnions are described in a companion paper. The general test arrangement, structural details and results for nine large-scale specimens are presented. The experimental results show that there is a significant strength contribution from the side braces to the overall plate trunnion strength, which the industry practice ignores. From the tests, two distinct failure modes associated with main-plate dominated, and shear plate or brace dominated responses were observed. The shear yield strengths of the shear plate and side braces are found to provide a consistent lower-bound reference strength for the tested specimens.
