In this paper we have suggested original design of connection based on metal plates
which includes an additional nail-plate which allows increasing the bearing capacity of the
connection (up to 31.15 %). We have substantiated the method of rational design and
calculation of the bearing capacity of the connection on metal plates according to the finite
element method by using the Ansys 15.0 software.
Keywords: metal plates; nail-plate; FEM; stress-strain state.
