View NCCI for Section 3: Connections made with bolts, rivets or pins

Taken from BS EN 1993-1-8: 2005

Bearing column splices  (SN026)
In bearing column splices, loads are transferred in direct bearing from the upper column to the lower column, either directly between the ends of the column sections or through a division plate. The splice connections hold the connected columns in line and are generally arranged such that the cover plates are symmetrically placed about the centroidal axis of the column sections.

Column splices not requiring full continuity of stiffness  (SN025)
In many cases, economy may be achieved in column splices if they are not required to maintain the full stiffness (EIy and EIz) of the upper column section through the splice. There is a need to identify and explain how such column splices should be designed. It is also necessary to identify the type of frames and positions where such column splices may be used.

Design model for non-bearing column splices  (SN023)
This NCCI provides rules for verifying the adequacy of a 'non-bearing column splice' for a column in 'simple construction'. It also provides rules for the determination of the tensile tying resistance of the splice for structural integrity. The rules may be used to evaluate the overall resistance of the splice, for all the possible modes of failure, based on the rules in EN 1993-1-8 for determining the resistances of individual components in a connection.

Initial sizing of fin plate connections  (SN016)
This NCCI provides rules for the initial sizing of the components of fin plate connections for a 'Simple joint'. The rules apply to a bolted connection using non-preloaded bolts (i.e. a Category A: Bearing type bolted connection).

Initial sizing of non-bearing column splices  (SN024)
In simple construction (see SN020), splices are generally provided just above floor levels, typically 500 mm (See SN025). The splice connections hold the connected columns in line along a common centroidal axis. In non-bearing column splices, as described in SN025 and SN023, loads are transferred via bolts and cover plates. Any bearing between the ends of the columns is ignored and the splice is normally detailed with a physical gap between the two parts of the columns. The cover plates are generally arranged so that the centroidal axis of the splice material coincides with the centroidal axis of the column sections. When joining columns of different serial size, multiple packs are necessary to take up the dimensional variations. In order to limit the packing thickness to reasonable proportion (about 30 mm) no more than one jump in the column serial size should be used at each splice. Simplified guidance given in this document should only be used for initial sizing. Full verification (see SN023) will be necessary at the final design stage.

Initial sizing of simple end plate connections  (SN013)
This NCCI provides rules for the initial sizing of the components of end plate connections for a 'Simple Joint'. Both partial depth and full depth end plates are covered by this NCCI. The rules apply to a bolted connection using non-preloaded bolts (i.e. Category A: Bearing type bolted connection).

Shear resistance of a fin plate connection  (SN017)
This NCCI provides rules for the determination of shear resistance of a 'Simple Joint' using a fin plate connection for Beam/Column and Beam/Beam connections. The rules apply to a bolted connection loaded in shear and using non-preloaded bolts (i.e. Category A: Bearing type bolted connection). This NCCI covers the rules for the fin plate, the supported beam and the supporting column or beam. The rules may be used to evaluate the overall shear resistance of the connection, for all the possible modes of failure, based on the rules in EN 1993-1-8 for determining the resistances of individual components of the connection.

Tension resistance of angles in SCI P363 (AD 351)
This NCCI is based on a Steel Construction Institute (SCI) Advisory Desk Note. SCI has received a number of questions regarding the tension resistance tables provided in the 'Eurocode Blue Book' (SCI publication P363) for single angles connected through one leg by welding or bolting. This AD clarifies the basis of the values in P363.

Tying resistance of a fin plate connection  (SN018)
This NCCI provides rules for the determination of tying resistance of a 'Simple Joint' using a fin plate connection for Beam/Column and Beam/Beam connections. The rules apply to a bolted connection, using non-preloaded bolts (i.e. Category A: Bearing type bolted connection). This NCCI covers the rules for the fin plate, the supported beam and the supporting column web. The rules may be used to evaluate the overall tying resistance of the connection, for all the possible modes of failure, based on the rules in EN 1993-1-8 for determining the resistances of individual components of the connection. The design procedure given in this NCCI applies to an accidental limit state.
