The current paper presents the results of a parametric analysis carried out on welded aluminium T-stub by means of FEM numerical models, which have been preliminarily calibrated on the basis of experimental tests. The study is carried out on 36 specimens conceived with different features and different types of bolts, in order to favour all possible collapse mechanism and to highlight the structural sensitivity of the T-stub system with respect to various mechanical and geometrical parameters. On the basis of the obtained outcomes, the reliability of the method presently available in EC9 is checked. The current paper represents a significant extension with respect to the experimental tests and numerical analyses carried out by the authors in the past.
