What is the purpose of tie rods on an expansion joint?

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. Angular rotation can be accommodated only if two tie rods are used and located 90 degrees opposed to the direction of rotation.
