Sole plate anchor rod holes

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
For you bridge engineers...

We are reviewing shop dwgs and the fabricator wants to put a 2" dia. hole in
the bearing sole plate for a 1.5" dia. anchor rod.  This seems excessive.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

The bridge is a simple span, 48' long, one end fixed and the other end
expansion with no anchor rods.  The bearings are steel reinforced
elastomeric pads.
