RE: lateral load to Dave Anderson

See the quote below.  

I do not understand this statement at all.  Just because a material property
is not listed in the AISC manual does not mean that the material property
does not exist.  You need to read the ASTM A307 specification.  The material
is in fact A36 steel.  The biggest difference between the A307 bolt as
opposed to a bolt made of A36 steel is the testing requirements contained in
the A307 specification.  A307 bolts have very good ductile properties.

...... As for the A307 Bolts.  If you look in the AISC bolt design tables
(sorry, I don't have my manual with me) you will see under the A307
specification that there is no yield stress given (Fy), only ultimate or
rupture (Fu).  There for the bolt ruptures without yielding (elongation) and
is not ductile.  But, the Fp design load (.48Wp) at the wall to roof
connection is at a level which may perform without needing to go into the
post yield range.....
