bolts in bending

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have a connection in which the bolts will be subject to shear and bending because of a cantilever. I have looked in the AISC Manual and online, and the only thing that comes close to adressing this was from FAQ:
"The AISC specification does not have an equation for combining the effects of tension, shear, and bending on anchor rods."
That is for anchor rods, but not sure about bolts. Does AISC allow this or have an equation for checking them? I am doing my best to talk the client into another option but this is a tricky, as built situation we are dealing with. I am not talking about prying, it is a 4" cantilever.
Thanks in advance, please CC me directly also.
