ASTM A325 Bolt using DTI will the Section 7.1 Tension Califrator test still be needed?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hi:
 
Reading the November issue Modern Steel Construction's Peter Birkemoe's "Structural Bolting Issues."
 
I would like to know is "ASTM A325 Bolt Section 7.1 Tension Calibrator test" needed when the project uses DTIs for Slip Critical joint, class-A slip resistance?
 
Thanks

ps:  Is it to naive to say the factored-load is for LRFD design and service-load is for ASD?
