RE: Hooked anchor bolts

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

I believe hooked anchor rods are not specifically disallowed by Code… it’s just that AISC recommends they not be used for columns with uplift.  Headed anchor rods have a greater and more definable uplift capacity.  But I can’t quote a specific code reference as such.

I know hooked anchor bolts do not perform as well as headed anchors. Are hooked anchors even still allowed by current Codes at column bases?
