tightness of anchor bolts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
What is the standard amount that foundation anchor bolts are tightened unless specified?  What is the definition of snug tight - first contact or contact plus turns? 
 
If subjected to tension loads from lateral forces (wind or earthquake) is there a certain torque that should be applied and if so what is it?
 
Thanks for any input.
