Module 1 – Eccentrically Loaded Bolt Groups
Design Module No. 1 covers traditional methods for determining the resistance of bolt groups in connections of various configurations which are subject to an eccentric point load applied either in-plane or out-of-plane. Bolt groups subject to an inclined point load applied in-plane are also included. Several sets of charts and tables are presented to assist designers, and a number of solved examples are given to illustrate practical applications.
