Tag: Anchor Bolts Behavior and Design of Anchor Bolts Loaded in Shear

Anchor bolts loaded in shear, and located without a nearby free edge in the direction of load, can fail by local crushing of the masonry under bearing stresses from the anchor bolt; by pryout of the head of the anchor in a direction opposite to the direction of applied load, or by yield and fracture of the anchor bolt steel.

Tag: Anchor Bolts Behavior and Design of Anchor Bolts Loaded in Tension

Anchor bolts loaded in tension can fail by breakout of a roughly conical body of masonry, or by yield and fracture of the anchor bolt steel. Bentbar anchor bolts (such as J-bolts or L-bolts) can also fail by straightening of the bent portion of the anchor bolt, followed by pullout of the anchor bolt from the masonry. Nominal tensile capacity

Tag: Anchor Bolts Strength Design of Anchor Bolts

In masonry construction, anchor bolts are most commonly used to anchor roof or floor diaphragms to masonry walls. As shown in Fig. 5.26, vertically oriented anchor bolts can be placed along the top of a masonry wall to anchor a roof diaphragm resting on the top of the wall. Alternatively, horizontally oriented anchor bolts can be placed along the face
