Re: L-shaped A490 Anchor Bolts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
For what it is worth, up here (the great white north) we engineers have been told to use the term Anchor Rods in lieu of anchor bolts to try to steer away from the impression that anchor bolts are the same as high strength bolts. Is that not the case in the states?

For what it's worth, I didn't see or read any negative connatations in your inital reply. Yes, you have been known to be "snarky" in the past, but I saw none of that. Just my opinion as I am just seeing this discussion now. Cheers!

We tend to be lazy. We write up some general notes or specs at some point - maybe with thought, maybe just cribbed from someone else - and then we reuse them for the rest of our careers without revisiting any of the assumptions.
