Abstract


  • The writers thank the discusser for the interest in the original paper

    and for the discussion, which provides the opportunity to clarify

    and reiterate a few points made in the original paper.

    The writers agree with the discusser that the behavior of bolted

    connections is not as simple as they appear to be to the casual

    observer, which is one reason why many structural collapses have

    been associated with connection failures. Furthermore, a substantial

    number of code equations for various ultimate limit states of

    bolted connections lead to considerable errors on either side of conservatism

    (Teh and Clements 2012; Teh and Gilbert 2012; Teh and

    Yazici 2013a).
