Tensioning Anchor Bolts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Fellow engineers,
 
        A question has come up regarding how much pretension force should be applied to anchor bolts.  The situation is a small stack, 24" in diameter requiring twelve 1" anchor bolts, each loaded to about 12,000 pounds.  I plan to use an 8" high seat for the bolts.  Deflection under wind load is the governing criteria.
 
        Does anyone have any thoughts on this subject?
 
        Thank you in advance for your thoughts.
 
Regards,
 
H. Daryl Richardson
