PURPOSE
AASHTOs Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges and the Load and Resistance Factor Design
(LRFD) Specifications do not prescribe hard and fast methods for gusset plate design. Rather, general
engineering principles and textbook methods are used for gusset plate design. This Design Advisory will
provide additional guidance, including an example, to designers of new or replaced non-load-path-
redundant steel truss bridges.

BACKGROUND
On August 1, 2007, the I-35W Interstate highway bridge over the Mississippi River in Minneapolis,
Minnesota, experienced a failure in the superstructure of the steel deck truss. Physical examination of the
recovered bridge structure showed that some gusset plates were fractured. Examination of the design
methodology used at the time was found to be sound. Although no problems were identified with the
design methodology used for the bridge, the investigation discovered that some gusset plates on the main
trusses of the bridge were undersized.
Accordingly, NYSDOT put in place an implementation plan to address FHWA recommendations regarding
Load-carrying Capacity Considerations of Gusset Plates in Non-load path redundant Steel Truss
Bridges. On J anuary 15, 2008 FHWA issued a Technical Advisory that made three recommendations
covering: new or replaced non-load-path-redundant steel truss bridges, future recalculations of load
capacity on existing non-load-path-redundant steel truss bridges, and reviewing previous load ratings of
gusset plates on bridges subjected to significant changes in stress levels. This Structures Design
Advisory (SDA) addresses new or replaced non-load-path-redundant steel truss bridges.
A separate NYSDOT Load Rating Technical Advisory is being issued to address the other
recommendations.

TRUSS GUSSET PLATE DESIGN AND ANALYSIS
Ordinarily, gusset plates are stronger than the truss members they connect and should not control the
capacity of the structure. There are several possible approaches to the design and analysis of truss gusset
plates. A recommended procedure is outlined in this Structures Design Advisory (SDA). Other analysis
procedures may be used if they are soundly documented and considered to be applicable for the bridge
under design.
The gusset plate design shall be made using AASHTOs Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD)
Specifications with the HL-93 and NYSDOT Design Permit Vehicle for Live loads.
Truss member connections shall be designed at the strength limit state for not less than the larger of the
average of the axial force due to the factored loadings at the point of splice or connection and the factored
axial resistance of the member at the same point OR 75 percent of the factored axial resistance of the
member per LRFD Article 6.13.1. The aforementioned LRFD article does not apply to sections of
interest.

The maximum stress on a section due to the factored loads shall be checked in accordance with LRFD
Article 6.14.2.8.

LIVE LOAD CASES

Four live load cases will be considered at each truss joint:

1. Position the HL-93 live load plus impact such that the factored force in the higher loaded chord is
maximized while using the corresponding forces for that case in the diagonals and verticals at that
joint.

2. Position the HL-93 live load plus impact such that the factored force in the higher loaded diagonal
is maximized while using the corresponding forces for that case in the chords and vertical at that
joint.

3. Position the NYSDOT Design Permit Vehicle live load plus impact such that the factored force in
the higher loaded chord is maximized while using the corresponding forces for that case in the
diagonals and verticals at that joint.

4. Position the NYSDOT Design Permit Vehicle live load plus impact such that the factored force in
the higher loaded diagonal is maximized while using the corresponding forces for that case in the
chords and vertical at that joint.


SECTIONS OF INTEREST

At least four sections, two horizontal sections located adjacent to the chord and two vertical sections
located on either side of the vertical member, shall be investigated at each truss joint. These sections are
illustrated in the attached Math Cad worksheet. An additional section shall also be investigated at truss
joints where there is a break in the alignment of the chord. Additional sections should be investigated at
unusual truss joint configurations.

At each of these sections the following are to be checked:

Maximum stress from combined factored flexural and axial loads on the
gross and net sections.
Uniform and maximum shear stress on both the gross and net sections.


UNSUPPORTED EDGE DISTANCE

The unsupported edge distance of gusset plates should be designed in accordance with LRFD Article
6.14.2.8

EDGE SLENDERNESS RATIO REQUIREMENT

The edge slenderness of gusset plates should be designed in accordance with LRFD Article 6.9.3

MEMBER CONNECTION FORCE

Four cases will be considered at each member:

1. Maximum tensile force in the member due to dead load plus HL-93 live load plus impact.

2. Maximum compressive force in the member due to dead load plus HL-93 live load plus impact.

3. Maximum tensile force in the member due to dead load plus NYSDOT Design Permit Vehicle live
load plus impact.

4. Maximum compressive force in the member due to dead load plus NYSDOT Design Permit
Vehicle live load plus impact.

BOLT CAPACITY

The capacity of the bolts connecting the truss members to the gusset plates shall be designed for the
maximum truss member force and in accordance with LRFD Articles 6.13.1 & 6.13.2.

BLOCK SHEAR RUPTURE RESISTANCE

Gusset plates should be designed for block shear rupture in accordance with LRFD Article 6.13.4.
The analysis of block shear rupture involves the evaluation of several patterns of planes to arrive at the
governing pattern.

ANALYSIS OF WHITMORE SECTION

The tensile stress on the gusset plate shall also be checked at the Whitmore Section. This considers the
axial load applied to the gusset plate individually by each truss member to the Whitmore Section.

The Whitmore Section is defined in the attached Math Cad worksheet.

BUCKLING CHECK OF COLUMN UNDER COMPRESSION MEMBERS

The resistance of gusset plates in compression shall be determined as that of idealized members in
compression in accordance with the provisions of AASHTO LRFD Articles 6.9.2.1 and 6.9.4.

WORKED EXAMPLE

An example using a Math Cad worksheet is distributed along with this Structures Design Advisory.

Job Title: ____________________
This Mathcad worksheet is intended to analyze gusset plates according to the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design
Specifications, 4th Edition 2007. Gusset plates are analyzed for shear, bending, and axial force effects by the
conventional "Method-of-Section" procedures. It should be noted that this sheet only investigates three common
sections of interest, two vertical and one horizontal section. Additional sections should be investigated at joints
that have a break in the alignment of the chord and/or unusual joint configurations. Member connections are
analyzed for bolt resistance, block shear rupture resistance, and Whitmore section stresses.
Disclaimer: This worksheet and sample calculations outline an acceptable method for designing truss gusset
plates. There may be other acceptable procedures for this design. While this Mathcad sheet has been checked,
it should be used by an engineer familiar with truss and gusset plate design. Sound engineering judgement is
required to apply this method to individual situations and to bridges that may vary from this example.
