RE: tap holes

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
AISC tabulated values are based upon a hardened nut that develops the 
strength of the bolt. That is, for conventional applications, shear, 
tension or combined shear and tension on the threaded shank of the bolt 
will always control. If you tap into a plain plate, this will likely not be 
the case. You'll likely have to consider other limit states, such as thread 
stripping. The Industrial Fasteners Institute could probably give you some 
guidance, since they get involved in a lot of applications other than 
conventional bolting.
