Re: Slip Critical Connections

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Slip-critical connections must always be checked for bearing.

The 1999 LRFD Specification, Section J3.10, requires that "Bearing strength
shall be checked for both bearing-type and slip-critical connections."

The 1993 LRFD Specification, Section J3.10, requires that "Bearing strength
shall be checked for both bearing-type and slip-critical connections."

The 1989 ASD Specification Commentary, Section J3.7, suggest that requires
that "slip-critical connections ... should comply with the provisions of
Sect.s J3.4 (allowable tension and shear) and J3.8 (minimum spacing) to
insure the usual minimum factor of safety of 2 against complete connection
failure."

Is there any situation where the design of a slip critical  bolted
connection would not be required to address bearing  requirements?
