    In the Eurocode the strength of dowel type connectors is determined according to the theory of plasticity. When the loading is in the grain direction the strength is well predicted by the plasticity theory. However, when the loading is in the transverse direction splitting may supervene plastic failure, as is shown in test series on smaller specimens with slotted-in steel plates. The scope of the present investigation is to trace the effect of eccentric transverse loading of full scale connections with slotted-in steel plates primarily loaded in the grain direction.
