Connection Types (Categories)

This section introduces the three fundamental types of bolted joint / connection: the bearing (shear) type connection, the slip-critical (slip resistant) shear connection and the tension type connection.

Bolt Bearing-Type Shear Connection An introduction to the bearing-type connection. This type of joint permits bolts to be loaded in shear across the connection due to bearing of the bolts against the inside surface of bolt holes.
Slip-Critical (Slip Resistant) Shear Connection An introduction to the slip-critical type connection. This type of joint is designed to be used with pre-loaded bolts, such that the shear force applied to the joint is resisted by friction between the faying surfaces.
Bolt Tension-Type Connection An introduction to the tension-type connection, where the bolt and clamped components of the joint are designed to transfer an applied tension load through the joint. Generally the joint should be designed such that the clamp load is never overcome by the external tension forces acting to separate the joint.
