mixing anchor bolts size

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hi everyone
I have question
do you like to mix anchor bolts size and why
if you have sill plate most likely 2x
with 1/2 diam. anchor bolts
and you need to add more bolts for the 
shear requirement after addition to the building 
do you add 5/8 diam. as require by code and mix the sizes
or add 1/2 diam.
and if you add 5/8 diam how it will works which one will fail first
thanks
