Mechanical fasteners which are subject to a combined shear and tensile stress occur most frequently in connections for diagonal bracing systems. Although the force in a diagonal may be reversible, the axial tensile force is more critical relative to the type of connections being discussed here. To facilitate calculations and to give the designer a feeling for the size of joints to be anticipated, it would be desirable to develop typical design charts.
