RE: Bolts in Combination with Welds

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
AISC J1.10 says bolt in bearing type connections shall not be considered as sharing the stress in combination with welds...  This section does allow for sharing in slip-critical connections.  I think this area has recently been discussed/debated though.

Subject: Bolts in Combination with Welds

I remember reading or hearing that High Strength Bolts can no longer be considered as sharing load with welds.  This makes perfect sense to me, but I cannot remember or find where this provision is specified.   Can anyone direct me to the appropriate code section?
