The bolted connection connects the connectors together by means of a fastener such as a bolt. The bolt connection is divided into two types: ordinary bolt connection and high strength bolt connection.
Advantages: The construction process is simple and easy to install. It is especially suitable for installation and connection on the construction site, and is also easy to disassemble. It is suitable for installation and disassembly structures and temporary connections.
Disadvantages: It is necessary to open holes in the plate and assemble the holes, increase the manufacturing workload, and require high precision in manufacturing; the bolt holes also weaken the cross-section of the components, and the connected parts often need to overlap each other or add auxiliary connections. The plate (or angle steel) is therefore more complicated and more expensive.
