APPENDIX D - ANCHORING TO CONCRETE

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I always assumed that longer anchor bolts have more capacity than shorter bolts when embedded in concrete.
 
I am doing a problem where the anchor bolts are in a pedestal. Based on equation (D-5), I am getting better values for shorter bolts than longer bolts.  Am I missing something ?
 
Thanks in advance for your input.
 
John.
