The spreadsheet allows to verify a riveted connection using the Eurocode norm EN 1993-1-8.



  • Riveted joint configuration definition 
  • User defined materials for rivet and connected plates
  • One or two shear sections configurations
  • Verification of distances between rivets and edges
  • Shear, tension and combined strength verification of the rivet
  • Connected plates bearing strength verification. Evaluation of the strength considering the position of the rivet in the connection
  • Tear out verification of the plate to pulling force at the section weakened by the holes
