The first objective of this project was to investigate and establish the fundamental multiplanar influences on the static strength of practical rectangular welded hollow section joints. The second objective was to develop a numerical modelling capability, fully calibrated against experimental results, which can be used in the future development of design guidance and hence reduce the need for future costly test programmes. The final objective was to recommend future activities to be undertaken to provide practical design guidance. The results are presented in this report.
