3.10.3 Angles connected by one leg and other unsymmetrically connected members in tension

(1) The eccentricity in joints, see 2.7(1), and the effects of the spacing and edge distances of the bolts, shall be taken into account in determining the design resistance of:

- unsymmetrical members;

- symmetrical members that are connected unsymmetrically, such as angles connected by one leg.

(2) A single angle in tension connected by a single row of bolts in one leg, see Figure 3.9, may be treated as concentrically loaded over an effective net section for which the design ultimate resistance should be determined as follows:

with 1 bolt:
