Anchor Bolt Value with partial bolt length into nut

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

Dear All,


Shorter than required length anchor bolts AB) were embedded into the concrete. The high strength bolt A449, 1.75 inch diameter is approximately ¼ inch short to fully engage the nut.


Is there any guideline to determine reduced capacity of the AB for tension and shear?


Any suggestion to improve the Anchor Bolt capacity to full value for tension and shear.



Thanks in advance.
