Deformation maps on the plastic and ultimate failure of T-stubs with a single bolt-row in tension are developed. The maps condense a large body of information within a two dimensional parameters space onto which different modes of deformation, including the r´egime boundaries, are plotted for any practical combination of geometric and material properties encountered in a T-stub. Its fidelity is demonstrated with experimental data from literature, and through a detailed parametric investigation by high-fidelity finite element analysis. The predictive capability of two existing analytical models are also assessed against predictions by the finite element model. Their shortcomings, and applicability, are critically assessed and discussed.
