In timber engineering the combination of components has a great influence on the load capacity and the serviceability of a construction. With this module you can design pencil-shaped metal connectors strained in shearing, such as rod dowels and fitting pins in tensile splices.
Register now! After log-in you can use module T02 for designing tensile splices for 10 days free of charge. All functions are at your disposal for this period of time. You can do static calculations, save your projects and write reports.
With this module single tensile splices with interior or exterior pull straps made of steel sheet can be designed. Depending on the construction type you have a choice between rod dowels , fitting pins or a combination.
You can choose between:
To minimize the required input parameters, a connection optimization is available. It is only necessary to enter the connection type, the cross-sectional dimensions and the load. The choice of steel sheet thickness, the number and diameter of the connecting means as well as the distances between them and the edge are automatically calculated by the program and can be adjusted manually as required.
