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