prEN 1993-1-8 : 2003 (E) 7.4.3 Multiplanar joints

(1) In each relevant plane of a multiplanar joint, the design criteria given in 7.4.2 should be satisfied using the reduced design resistances obtained from 7.4.3(2).

(2) The design resistances for each relevant plane of a multiplanar joint should be determined by applying the appropriate reduction factor p given in Table 7.7 to the resistance of the corresponding uniplanar joint calculated according to 7.4.2 by using the appropriate chord force for Xp .
