RE: Anchor bolt cover

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I don't know of any specific code requirements. The concrete cover should be determined based on the concrete cover required for shear on the anchor bolt and due to lateral bursting forces at the head due to tension on the anchor bolt. (Or if a drilled-in anchor, per manufacturer's literature or ICBO reports.)

Subject: Anchor bolt cover

What is the minimum cover for an anchor bolt in a cast in place concrete pier? Also, what section of the ACI or AISC (ASD) refers to this? The column is supporting gravity loads only.
