Abstract: The effect of various misalinement patterns on functional characteristics of the bolted joints has been investigated. The results have also been compared with findings of previous research. The conclusions indicate that unsymmetrical misalinement might cause definite readjustments in the behavior of the joints while in the process of loading. Major characteristics, such as ultimate load and joint efficiency, are not significantly changed. Because the readjustments require plastic deformations, the present results apply only to steels with sufficient range of plastic deformability.
