While placed on ‘connection detail’ over the weekend I started investigating the various methods and their appearance.
If you’re not familiar with bolt connections, this site seems to cover the basics (and probably a little more). It also has some intense equations that I suspect we will not be needing for a project of our scale.
While I was searching for interesting built work , I found this awesome bus stop in Taiwan. The group that did the designs (JAIA) seems to put together very aged/worn looking projects in their workshops, yet their assembly diagrams are immaculate.
I also found some good images of a post connection to the ground. (I suspect we will not be working with 10 x 10’s at Elliotborough . . .)
Although I don’t think we’re going to do this over 100 times for the entire wall, I think this connection could be very useful when designing the water(tower) catchment system.
