Washer requirements for steel to steel bolted connections

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The steel specification section J3.2c, d, and e in The 
Ninth Edition of the AISC Manual of Steel Construction 
(ASD) states specifically that washer shall be used with 
bolts in oversized holes, short-slotted holes, and long-
slotted holes.  But no mention of whether washers should 
be used with bolts in standard holes.

The ASD Specification for Structural Joints Using ASTM 
A325 or A490 bolts (Pg. 5-263 of the Manual of Steel 
Construction) does have very specific washer 
requirements for bolted connections using these bolts.  
Does this mean that washers are not required in steel to 
steel connections for bolts in standard holes that are 
not A325 or A490?
