It has to be noted that these formulae only apply to base plates where the anchor bolts are not

located outside the beam flanges, as indicated in Figure 2.3.9.

Stiffness properties

The elastic deformation of a T-stub in tension is discussed in section and accurate
formulae for stiffness evaluation are suggested. They have been used in section to
derive simplified expressions for inclusion in Revised Annex J of Eurocode 3.
