Fig. 12.10. Forces in a row of fasteners in a connection subjected to combined moment and lateral loading.

The capacity of each fastener in the row, Fv d, will be:

n yM, connection where the symbols are as previously defined and Fv Rk is the characteristic load-carrying capacity of the fastener, derived as described in Chapters 10 and 11 for metal dowel type fasteners and connectors, respectively. To comply with the requirements of EC5 the design condition to be satisfied will be max{ Fh ^ d cos fa} < Fv,d where max{Fhj;jd cos fa} is the component of force with the largest value acting along the direction of the row. For a regular pattern, the value will be the same for all fasteners.

See Example 12.8.1.
