What is the difference between tie rod and limit rod?

The function of tie rods on an expansion joint is to continuously restrain the full pressure thrust during normal operation while permitting only lateral deflection. Limit rods are used to limit axial expansion or compression. Limit rods are designed to absorb the pressure thrust of the expansion joint in case of anchor failure.
