RE: L Bolts - Was enercalc V6

            Thomas,

                        Are you allowing L anchor bolts? ACI 318 Appendix D RD5.3.5 essentially prohibits them. Even though we almost never assume any tension on our anchor bolts, we do not use any more L bolts. The price is about the same. The liability seems lower.
