RE: Shear Tabs Connections with slotted holes

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
As John pointed out, there are additional tables in Appendix C of Vol. 2 of
the ASD Manual. The main difference is that in Vol. 1, the eccentricity to
the bolt line is taken as 3 in. In Vol. II, equations are given for
calculating the eccentricity based on whether the holes are standard or
short-slots and the support condition (flexible or rigid).

I assume that the research report (1989) wasn't finished in time for
publication in Vol. 1 (1989), so a conservative procedure was offered and
then it was updated in Vol. 2 (1992).

Subject: Shear Tabs Connections with slotted holes

In the ASD 9th Edition, it states that values in Table X may be overly
conservative for snug tight bolts in slotted holes and that research was
being conducted on this subject.

Has there been any recent update on this subject.
