Design Considerations

The design of joints formed using connectors subjected to lateral loading is covered in this chapter and the design of connectors subjected to a moment is addressed in Chapter 12.

Connections fitted with connectors have to satisfy the relevant design rules and requirements of EC5 and the limit states associated with the main design effects are given in Table 11.1. The strength and displacement requirements for connectors are the same as those referred to in 10.1 for metal dowel type connections.
