Abstract

If the plates in a joint are not initially flat it may not be possible to bring the plates together over the entire faying area when the bolts are tightened. To ascertain whether or not it is necessary to have full contact over the entire faying area to develop the slip resistance of a joint, fifteen butt joints were tested.
