Modular structures have just emerged in the building industry. Modules are manufactured at the factory, transported to the site and assembled on site by means of a tower crane. The size of the modules is limited by the vehicle carrying the modules. Because modular structures are repeatable and manufactured in the factory, they are low in cost, fast to build, high quality, and less risky in terms of security. The most important component of modular structures are connections. Because the connections greatly affect the stability, tolerance, oscillation, strength, strength and behavior of the structure. However, it is quite difficult to understand the performance of the connections. Therefore, a lot of work needs to be done on the connections.
