The invention relates to building structures, namely the means of connection of building elements with each other.

Known joint connection of the stretched elements (SU # 887748, CL EV 1/38, 1/58. Jagofarov X., Cats C. J. "Joint connection tension members." - Publ. 07.12.1981, bull. No. 45), which includes the joined elements with beveled ends, is rigidly attached to the ends of the flanges with end stops, coupling bolts.

The lack of interface is that between adjacent flanges placed stops, the dimensions of which are smaller than the dimensions of the flanges, and the flanges do not have a firm contact with each other in the area of coupling bolts that are unfavorable for the work of the flanges to bend under the action of forces from the coupling bolts.

The closest in technical essence to the proposed joint connection is a joint connection (EN 2413820 C1 IPC EV 1/58. A. C. Marutyan, I. M. Pershin, Y. I. Pavlenko. Flange connection tension members closed profile. - Publ. 10.03.2011. Bull. No. 7), including the connecting elements at the ends of which an angle of 30 degrees installed flanges, sheet gasket between the flanges, which are paired reference tables, rigidly fastened to the flanges, in the collection of mutually bumped into each other, coupling bolts.

The disadvantage of this joint are bulky reference tables (at the ora), dimensions are greater than the dimensions of the flanges themselves. This leads to increased consumption of steel with a simultaneous decrease in the reliability of the joint. The fact that a tight contact is determined in each other of the edges of the supporting tables cannot be ensured due to inaccuracies of manufacture and installation, resulting in a force on the supporting tables are transmitted with a large eccentricity, which creates an additional force - torque in the elements of the joint. And the greater the length determined in each other of the edges of the supporting tables, the greater the eccentricity, as well as torque, reduce the reliability of the joint.

The aim of the invention is to simplify the design of flanged joint tension members and increase reliability while reducing material consumption.

This goal is achieved by the fact that each flange has an aperture and focus, and when the joint Assembly every stop is a hole adjacent the flange.

The invention consists in that each flange has a rectangular hole with rounded corners, wherein the longitudinal axis of the hole and the longitudinal axis of the stop is aligned with the longitudinal axis of the flange and one of the ends of the stop and a short side of the rectangular holes are aligned with each other and with the transverse axis of the flange, thus assembled, the emphasis is in the hole with the panorama of the flange with clearance on three sides and close to the short side of the hole, combined with the transverse axis of the flange, and the flanges are connected to each other clamping bolts arranged symmetrically relative to the axis of the flange.

In Fig.1 shows an external view of the assembled joint. In Fig.2 shows a section of the assembled joint in the plane of the axis 5 of connected elements 1. In Fig.3 and 4 is shown ready for Assembly connected elements, and Fig.5 - the process of Assembly of the joint. In Fig.6 shows a General view of the flange, section 1-1 of Fig.3 and 5. In Fig.7 and 8 shows the calculation scheme of the joint, and Fig.7 shows the decomposition in the center of the joint 9 external force N on the two components of efforts, namely: pitched NCacting along the flange on the shaft 7, and the normal NHacting transversely of the flange along the axis 6 of the joint, and Fig.8 shows the distribution of components of the external forces on the elements of the joint, namely the coupling bolts - Nbon the flange - 0,5 NCand the emphasis of 0.5 NC.

The interface consists of connected elements 1 with bevelled at an angle α to the axis 5, two identical flanges 2 which are welded to the beveled ends of the connected elements 1, 3 stops welded to the flanges 2, coupling bolts 4, the fastening flanges 2 with each other.

The axis of the joint and its elements are the following: 5 - axis connected elements 1; 6 - axis joint, perpendicular to the flanges; 7 and 8 are the longitudinal and transverse axis of the flange. Axis 5, 6, 7 and 8 intersect in the center 9 of the joint.

The flange is the junction of the tension members is as follows.

The flange 2 with the stop 3 is manufactured separately from the steel sheet. Procurement for emphasis is cut from the flange than at the same time a hole of the flange. The rectangular hole of the flange and the focusing are performed with rounded corners to reduce stress concentration under load. Focus 3 is fastened to the flange 2 by welding. Thus the longitudinal axis of the hole and stops 3 are aligned with the longitudinal axis 7 of the flange 2 and the end face of the stop 3 and the short side openings are aligned with the transverse axis 8 of the flange 2 (Fig.6). Holes 10 for coupling bolts 4 are drilled.

The connecting element 1 is performed with a beveled end at an angle α to the axis 5. The flange is attached to the slanted end of the articulating element by welding.

When the joint Assembly (Fig.2, 3, 4 and 5) stops appear in the holes adjacent flanges with clearance on three sides, but on tightly to the edge of the fourth short edge of the hole, aligned with the transverse axis 8 of the flange. The flanges 2 are fastened to the clamping bolts 4 so that the flanges tightly pressed to each other. This provided favorable conditions for the work of the flanges to bend under the influence of forces from the coupling bolts, and ensure the integrity of the internal cavity of connected elements, thus excluding the corrosion of steel is connected elements inside.

The junction is symmetrical relative to the center 9 that provides vtimezone is resistant connected elements. Joint universal, suitable for all forms of cross-section of connected elements.

The interface works as follows.

External force N acting along the axis 5 of the stretched elements 1, can be transformed into the center of the joint 9 on the two components of the effort. One of them NHdirected along the axis 6 of the junction, i.e., perpendicular to the flanges, and the second NC- along the longitudinal axis 7 of the flanges (Fig.7).

The force directed along the axis 6 of the junction, is perceived by the clamping bolts 4, the number "nb" which is determined by calculation (Fig.1, 6 and 8).

Effort NCacting on the shaft 7, that is, along the flanges, half-perceived directly by the flange 2, and the other half focusing 3 and it is further transmitted to the flange 2 (Fig.8). From the flange 2 of the efforts transmitted to the beveled end of the articulating element 1 through the welded seams.

This distribution of effort NCbetween the stop and the flange due to the fact that adjacent lugs do not interact with each other and interact only with the edges of the holes adjacent flanges. Reduction efforts, acting on the stop 3, provides the following technical and economic effect:

- reduced consumption of steel in focus, and the amount of welds securing the stop to the flange;

- reduced the length of the end stops in contact with the edge of the hole of the flange and is equal to the eccentricity of the force 05N Con the stop, which significantly reduces torque on the fence and in the flange;

- feature interaction stops with flanges is that the torque in the flanges have different directions and cancel each other inside of the flanges, not turning to other elements of the joint. All this contributes to increase the reliability of the junction with the simultaneous reduction of material consumption.

Thus, the proposed flanged joint tension members has a simple structure, economical and more reliable.

Flanged joint tension members includes the connected elements with beveled ends and welded thereto flanges with rectangular lugs and round holes for the clamping bolts, characterized in that each flange has a rectangular hole with rounded corners, wherein the longitudinal axis of the hole and the longitudinal axis of the stop is aligned with the longitudinal axis of the flange and one of the ends of the stop and a short side of the rectangular holes are aligned with each other and with the transverse axis of the flange, while the assembled emphasis enters the opening in the adjacent flange with clearance on three sides and close to the short side of the hole, combined with the transverse axis of the flange, and the flanges are connected to each other clamping bolts arranged symmetrically relative to the axis of the flange.
