Characteristic lateral resistance per shear plane provided by the toothed-plate connectors in the row, Fv Rk n

Characteristic lateral resistance per shear plane at each connection provided by the toothed-plate connectors plus the bolts in the row, Fv.Rk.connection

The design resistance of each connection per shear plane per row,

Fv.Rd

The design strength of each connection, Fv.Rd.joint

The design load on the joint, Fd

Fv.Rk.connection = 30.94 kN

KM. connection

The design load is less than the design strength of the connection; therefore OK

11. The instantaneous and final deflection of the joint at the SLS

The design condition is taken to be based on the characteristic combination of actions at the SLS

The slip modulus of a connector per shear plane at the SLS, Kser (Table 11.4) (EC5, Table 7.1) (The equation incorporates dimension factors for Mathcad.)

The stiffness of each connection at the SLS,

Kser.connection

(2 No shear planes; ntp connectors per shear plane)

The stiffness of the joint at the SLS, Kser.joint (Figure 10.24)

The instantaneous deflection of the joint at the SLS, 5inst (allowing 1 mm tolerance for each connection) (equation (10.74) also applies to connectors)
