This paper presents several theoretical issues regarding the behaviour and calculus of the connections made with end plates and bolts, including the cover plate for the tensile stress flange. An example for calculating the hybrid connection solution is also provided, when end plates are joined together with bolts and an additional cover plate over the joint area, at the elongated flange of the girder, a solution applied for a bridge for which the feasibility study was performed.
