Sophisticated design techniques such as partially restrained connections need

detail information on the load-deformation response of bolted connections. The behavior

of single bolt, single shear connections are studied. Seventy tests with different

configurations were conducted to evaluate their failure mechanisms and load-deformation

characteristics. Comparisons to previous study were made. A new analytical model for

the determination of load-deformation response of bolted connections was presented as

well as a new Unified Design Curves approach for design purposes. It has been proven

that this generalized method can be used efficiently.
