Abstract:
Available procedures for computing nominal capacity of short anchor bolts and welded studs loaded monotonically in tension are summarized and briefly discussed. Results of all available tensile tests are presented and compared with predictions of each procedure. Sufficiently accurate methods are identified for predicting the capacity of single anchors loaded in tension. However, some available methods are significantly unconservative, and all methods show considerable scatter for those tests governed by concrete rather than steel failure.
