Re: Bolted Connection To Existing Old Steel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Fellow engineers,
 
        I want to thank you for your replies to my enquiry on bolting to existing old steel.  Since there are more than one problem situations I will be making use of at least two different solutions.
 
        Thank you.
 
Regards,
 
H. Daryl Richardson

I believe this also has an Evaluation Report.  If you call the manufacturer they can get you a copy.  I do not think they have an ER number yet.

Drew,
 
        At first glance it looks very promising.  Thanks for the lead.

        The obvious solution is to connect the flange of a T (perhaps fabricated from plate) to the existing steel and weld the web of the new beam to the stem of this T.  The load in the order of five thousand pounds in shear (no tension).  The devil is in the detail.
 
Would the Lindapter Hollo-Bolt work?
