Title: Tension values for Nelson Studs
Try, "Connections for Tilt-Up Wall Construction" by the Portland Cement Association, under the section Connection Design.  They have six tables for design tensile strength of single studs and stud groups.  You can also refer to Division III, Chapter 19 of 1997 UBC; Design Standard for Anchorage to Concrete.

Subject: Tension values for Nelson Studs

We are using Nelson Studs to hold down a composite floor against uplift forces.  Does anyone know what the allowable uplift (tension) is for the stud/floor system per stud?  I've checked their website but they don't have design information there.
