FW: Anchor bolts

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

> The anchor bolts for a  steel radar tower are placed out of alignment (not
> plumb).  I want to use the following justification when discussing this
> issue with the contractor , Is this a valid technical justification? 
> 
> "When the nuts are placed on the bolts and tightened to torque specs the
> tension on the nut will not be evenly distributed since one side of the
> nut will not be fully in contact with the base plate.  Bolts are best when
> 90 degrees to the base plate".
