RE: Hooked anchor bolts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Will,
Hooked anchor bolts are not specifically banned, but they are not good practice. The only code that was ever cited for developing design tension values was the ACI 318-63. The next edition of ACI dropped the plain rod development because the tension development length could not be substantiated.

Regards,
Harold Sprague

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?
