Embedded Anchor Bolts in Masonry

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A question to masonry experts (Harold Sprague et al),

I have a building under construction where the mason installed the anchor 
bolts without the 1 inch grout space around them. The wall is a three story 
concrete block and is up 2-1/2 stories. The inspector caught it while 
inspecting the wall at the 2-1/2 story level and the bolts are at the 2nd and 
3rd floor levels. Are there any ways of accepting these bolts (two 7/8" @ 16" 
o.c.) if they meet a "certain" criteria? (load test, calculation, etc.)
