Evaluation of EC2 rules for design of tension lap joints

Authors from Heriot-Watt and The University of Stuttgart use a large amount of test data to evaluate EC2 rules for the design of tension lapped joints - and suggest that a degree of revision may be necessary, as the rules don't appear to offer the margins of safety expected.
