Re: A325 anchor bolts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Two possible solutions proposed by the Structural Steel Education
Council are:

1. Chipping out enough concrete to allow installation of a high strength
threaded coupler below the base plate to extend the anchor bolts.

2. Limited air carbon arc gouging of the base plate surface under the
nut to allow full thread engagement. Of course the remaining material
must be of sufficient thickness for the local stresses.
