relationships shown in Figure 10.21. No guidance is given for bolted connections that are loaded in this manner.

For smooth nails the combined design force to strength ratios must stay within the elastic range, resulting in a linear relationship in accordance with equation (10.69). The combined ratios for other nail types and for screws can extend beyond the elastic limit but must comply with the power function given in equation (10.70) (equations (8.27) and (8.28) respectively in EC5), where Fax.Rd is the design strength of the connection loaded axially, and Fv.Rd is the design strength of the connection loaded laterally.

See Example 10.13.6.
