base plates subject to uplift

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Table J3.1 of my ASD specs lists the diameter of an oversize hole for 3/4" 
bolts as 15/16 inch.  If your book has 1-5/16 inch, you need to get an errata.

>>What is the maximum oversize bolt hole diameter for a base plate subject to 
uplift? AISC allows 1-5/16" diameter holes for a 3/4" diameter bolt.  This is 
larger than the dimension  across the flat of  a 3/4" diameter bolt of 
1-1/8", and would seem to have a significant impact on the capacity of the 
connection.  Limiting hole diameter to 1/16" oversize seems overly 
restrictive for field fit up with anchor bolts.  How effective are hardened 
washers to transfer upfilt forces?<<
