J-bolts or headed studs

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

Joe:

 

You may want to consider using headed studs rather than J-bolts due to the eccentricities during tension loading that the j-bolts set up.  I believe SEAOC has published research illustrating this concern.  Our office no longer uses J-bolts for this reason.
