Seismic Bolting

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


Refer to AISC Seismic Provisions 7.2a. which states the same requirement and adds the following: ".....The design shear strength of bolted joints is permitted to be calculated as that for bearing-type joints".

If anybody can help I would appreciate it.

In FEMA-353 section 5.4 it states that "All bolts used in these connections shall be installed as in slip-critical joints with Class A faying surfaces". In regards to BUEP connections, what should be used as the shear capacity of the bolts. Should it be the slip-critical value or the non slip-critical value?
