Cool Help on Connections

Would it be possible to show the connection, even a generic one?
Also on the Connection report the text states "2No Pairs of bolts" or "2No Sets of bolts" could you clarify, as I understand it 2 pairs is 4 bolts in total, 2No sets of bolts is not so clear, would this be better worded 2No Bolts

Default Re: Help on Connections

Adding a dimensioned diagram for connections sounds like a good idea - I will give it some thought.

As regards how the number of bolts is described, currently we refer to sets for angle cleat connections, which implies 3: one through the two cleats and supported web, and one each through each cleat leg and the supporting web or flange; for end plates we refer to pairs, self evident; and for fin plates, just the number of bolts (as the checking is restricted to single row connections)

For anyone who does not already know, connection drawing was added to ProSteel 5.33, released January 2009.
