Welding nut to anchor rod

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: Welding nut to anchor rod

The following sentence is on Page 14-10, of the Steel Construction Manual, 13th edition, in a paragraph about anchor rods:  "The nut should be welded to the rod to prevent the rod from turning out when the top nut is tightened."

With respect to F1554-99 anchor bolts, does anyone know what the above statement is based on, i.e., theory, tests, opinion, what???

Thanks in advance.
