The values shown in Table 10-10 include the limit
state of bearing strength using Specification
formula J3-6a only. The limitations on the bolt
hole types for the Conventional Configuration SPSC
are stated to exclude long-slotted holes with slot
parallel to the direction of force, Spec formula

If long slots are used, then the additional limit
state from formula J3-6c must be checked. However,
I have not found the bearing strength limited by
formula J3-6c on SPSC that are thick enough for
erection stability.

>From a fabricator/erector viewpoint, I have argued
against some of these limitations in Manual
committee meetings, but it seems there are too
many engineers on the committee who don't want to
