Abstract

The correct design of bolted connections in steel framed construction is necessary to ensure a complete and efficient transfer of forces through the structure. The collapse of the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis highlights the catastrophic consequences of incorrect connection design. As such, connection design provisions are updated periodically to ensure they are correct and efficient, with unnecessary and flawed design checks removed.
