[SEAOC] 9" Anchor Bolt Embedment

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I would like to know if anyone would know the reason for the LA city
Building code to increase the Embedment of Anchore Bolts from 7" to 9", 
Does the 9" embedment increase the shear of the anchor bolts at the sill
plates? or does it do anything else that I am missing.

Thank you for any response,
