In this edition of DIS-TRAN Take2, led by Senior Civil Engineer, Bill Elliott, PE, he will explain and demonstrate how to design anchor bolts after calculating the axial loads. To learn more about developing loads in anchor bolts, click here to watch his previous video.
In this short, six minute video, Bill walks through four steps for designing anchor bolts:
1. Calculate the shear bolt load.
2. Calculate the max shear stress per bolt.
3. Calculate the max permitted tensile stress per bolt.
4. Take max bolt load and calculate actual tensile stress.
