Re: Bolt Holes, Another Application

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Another question on standard vs oversized bolt holes - what about holes for 
anchor bolts in base plates where shear is to be transferred from the base 
plate to the anchor bolt?  While contractors prefer to use oversized holes
at 
base plates due to construction tolerances, how can you count on shear 
transfer if holes are oversized?  (i.e., with reversible wind or seismic 
loads.)   
 
I normally specify anchor bolts to be placed using a template and use
standard 
hole sizes (1/16" over bolt size) where shear is to be transferred, but I am 
curious as to what others do.
