Structural Bolting

  • Multiple large cranes surrounding a skyscraper being constructed
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
