Re: Fwd: Single Plate LST Holes

Harold -

   Thanks again.

   This is a situation where the SEOR was requiring a slip critical type
connection since the Steel Manual's single plate prescribed "cookbook" 
design procedure mentions only standard and short slot type holes.

   I advised him that the Specifications did allow loads applied normal to 
the long slot but he kept circling back to the Manual's Connections and 
Shear sections.

The snug tight condition would be a bearing bolt, and you can use them in
the direction perpendicular to the slot within the limitations in AISC 360,
 Section 10.  If you need to resist load parallel to the slot, it would
have to be slip critical.  Again it is defined in Section 10.
