General

In addition to the constraint on the type of loading that can be taken by these columns, the design rules in EC5 only apply to members in which the elements of the column are made from full length parts (i.e. there are no joints along the length of the members) and the built-up column is pin jointed and effectively held laterally in position at each end.

(a) Glued spaced columns with glulam sections (b) Bolted spaced columns with solid sections
