This handbook sets out to explain the provisions of section 9 of AS 4100-1998 and then to expand on these provisions by developing general 'design aids' or 'tools' which can be applied to a variety of connection design situations.
Handbook 1 contains formulations in accordance with AS 4100-1998 for the assessment of bolts, bolt groups loaded by in-plane design actions, bolt groups loaded by out-of-plane design actions, welds, weld groups loaded by both in-plane and out-of-plane design actions, connection components, supported members (coped and uncoped members) and supporting members.
This publication supersedes a number of sections in AISC "Design of structural connections" by Hogan, T. J. and Thomas, I. R., 1994.
