connection
This example presents a method for calculating the shear resistance and
tying resistance of a "Simple Joint" for a fin plate beam-to-column-flange
connection. The bolted connection uses non-preloaded bolts (i.e. Category
A: Bearing type bolted connection).
For completeness, all the design checks listed below should be carried out.
However, in practice, for normal connections, the checks marked * will
usually be the critical ones. In this example, only checks marked with an *
are shown in detail. For other checks, reference should be made to the NCCIs
for Shear resistance [SN017] and for Tying resistance [SN018].

Before evaluating resistances, checks are made to ensure sufficient rotation


capacity (see Section 1) and to avoid premature weld failure (see Section 2).

Ductility

To ensure adequate ductility, the following requirements must be satisfied

VRd < min (VRd,1; VRd,7 ) and

If VRd = VRd,3 ; VRd,4 ; VRd,5 ; VRd,6 ; VRd,9 ; VRd,10 or VRd,11 then


VRd,1 > min (VRd,2 ; VRd,8 )

From the Summary table in Section 5:


VRd = VRd,8 = 146 kN
VRd,1 = 173 kN

VRd,7 = 777 kN
Since 146kN < 173 kN and the second condition is not applicable, the
ductility is ensured.
