Re: Column Anchor Bolt Placement

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
This rule applies to a stand-alone column. It may not apply for a column which is a part of a rigid frame. A load applied on a frame will be shared by all the columns of the frame. The nature of base plate forces will be consistent with the base plate detail.

By my understanding, it doesn't matter where the bolts are located as long as they can resist the eccentric load of 300# at the top of the column.  I think the numbers were 300#, 18" from the outside face of the column in each direction.

I have a question concerning OSHA 4 bolt column anchors.  I have a W14x34
column as part of a small rigid frame.  I can fit all 4 bolts inside the
column flanges.  Is that allowed, or do the bolts have to be outside the
column flanges?
