DESIGN EXAMPLE 4
Check the following beam to hollow section column joint for the design forces shown using
Blind Bolts to the column.
In this example the tie force is less than the shear force.
The connections should be checked independently for shear forces and tying forces and not for
both forces acting at the same time.

Although the connection resistance tables are based on ordinary bolts, they may be used to
determine the vertical shear resistance of connections with Blind Bolts, because bolt shear
resistance is generally not critical. The tables for ordinary bolts cannot be used to determine
the connection tying resistance, as the bolt tension resistance has a significant influence on
the tying resistance of the connection.

For connections using Blind Bolts, the tying resistance of the connection is the least of the
values obtained from Checks 11, 12 & 13.
The hollow section wall must also be checked as shown in Check 15.
