What is a single lap joint according to EN 1993-1-8:2005, 3.6.1.?

A single lap joint is a joint with two plates connection with bolts.

In the case of clause 3.6.1(10) which concerns a single lap joint with a single row of bolts the bolts require two washers because as the plates are pulled apart the connection bends and the head/nut tries to pull through the plate.
