Re: Anchor bolt design - wood sill on concrete

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

The code you refer to sounds like 1991 NDS: allowable bolt design value
Z' for single shear wood-to-wood connection shall apply with tm =2ts=
twice the thickness of wood member. Section 8.2.3 - Wood-to-Concrete

1997 NDS Section 8.2.3 Wood-to-Concrete Connections now refers you to
table 8.2E where design values are tabulated for you.
