RE: L Bolts - Was enercalc V6

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


I have not used an L anchor bolt in nearly 15 to 20 years.  I was only stating that the Simpson computer program provides detailed calculations for both headed and L bolts.  I suspect that L anchor bolts are probably still used often in light frame construction.

                        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.
