Document Type: Journal Paper


Results of 574 tests, covering considerable ranges of variables such as bolt diameter, sheet thickness, etc; four conditions formulated for predicting failure loads which are in satisfactory agreement with test values; if adequate safety factor is applied to these four conditions, joint deformations at design loads can be held to reasonably small values.
