Re: lateral load to Dave Anderson

Maybe I should stand corrected.  But, as Christophor Write's post would
indicate is that the yield stress is highly variable in A307 bolts.  With this
in mind, it would not be posible to ensure that the bolt fails in a ductile
manner.

But, for wall anchorage to the diaphragm, the design force level is high
enough to not have to depend on ductility.

For bolted ductile steel connections this would be an issue.
