Sample DescriptionThe paper concerns on issues related to the design of single-share blind bolted connections of cold-formed steel members. The results of experimental tests, proposals for the method of determining the load-displacement characteristics as well as the formula for determining the bearing capacity of the fastener were presented. To justify the rationality of the adopted solutions, the calculation results of an exemplary lattice frame with such connections are shown.
