  21. A plate element used to join two parallel components of a built-up column, girder or strut rigidly connected to the parallel components and designed to transmit shear between them.
    Batten plate
  22. A structural member whose primary function is to carry loads transverse to its longitudinal axis.
  23. The stress that occurs when two metal surfaces are in contact and a compressive force is applied perpendicular to the contact surfaces. Also, the stress that occurs where the shanks of bolts in holes or slots come into contact with the surrounding material.

  29. A furnace in which iron ore is reduced to pig iron.
    Blast furnace
  30. To remove part of the top and/or bottom flange and adjacent web at the end of a beam to avoid its interference with another member.
    Cope or Block
  31. To enlarge a punched or drilled hole by means of a cutter that accurately pares the inner surfaces of the hole to fit a pin.
  32. A girder with two or more web plates, which, with coverplates, form a closed box.
    Box girder
  33. A member in which the component parts enclose a space that is accessible only at the ends.
    Box section
  34. A diagonal member placed between panel points in a frame of other members to make a structure more rigid.
  35. A frame in which the resistance to lateral load or frame instability is provided primarily by a diagonal or other system of bracing
    Braced frame
  36. A series of diagonals and struts placed between main members to resist wind or other lateral forces.
    Bracing system
  37. A projecting type of a connection usually made of a tee, a combination of plates, or a plate and angles.
  38. The deflected position taken by a straight member under the influence of a compression load.
