Ensure Joint Integrity in Structural Bolting Applications

Structural bolting applications in the steel construction industry call out higher loading requirements to ensure joint integrity. Bolted connections that are too stiff or rigid can have a negative impact on the dynamic behavior of structural systems.
  • Structural members / structural systems
  • Asymmetric friction sliding structural connections (a sliding high joint / beam-to-column connection)
  • Skyscrapers
  • Structural systems subject to seismic activity
