New shear force dowel as modular system

Designers are often faced with the challenge to find a solution for the transverse force transmission of expansion joints that is flawless as regards statics, easy to install, and cost-effective at the same time. The new Egcodorn shear force dowel system of Frank allows the designer to dimension the shear force dowel according to the actual shear force and joint width. The system enables varying the dowel diameter and the anchor body of the Egcodorn as required for an optimum load transmission, e.g., large dowel diameter, small anchor body with a large joint width. Consequently, over...
