Hello everyone. I am designing a joint connection for the precast concrete walls with the frame structure. I have selected a connection as a M20 bolt is inserted in an angle steel plate with a slotted hole which is fixed in a concrete beam and a backing plate of grade Q235 is inserted inside a bolt and attached with an angle plate using an elastic material such as polyethylene then, the nut is tied using a certain preload. Do you guys think that the connection is flexible enough to resist the seismic load as well as shear load.
