Re: Fwd: Single Plate LST Holes

   ST = Snug Tight. Due to the long slotted holes, I was wondering if the 
ST type connection was OK or if a slip critical type connection is required 
 for this situation.

Yes.  The AISC 360, Secton 10. Bearing Strength at Bolt Holes has
provisions for calculating the strength normal to the slot.

I am not sure what you mean by an "ST" joint.
