RE: Sill bolts on metal decking question.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Thanks much'  my question was more related too; if I don't place steel 
beams below shear walls except at holdown locations is it practical to 
drill in post installed anchors into the concrete slab ?  Preferably at the 
 lowest flute areas of the decking.

Andrew, Joe
That good idea
but don't put the load on the flange
the rod should bolted to 3 inch SQ. plate between two stiff. welded to the
web All uplift or down load transfer to the web good luck nw
