Re: Anchor rod washers

This table may (and not necessarily will) work only for the "standard" oversize. 
According to Section "Washer Requirements" (page 14-10), the washer "thickness must be suitable for the forces transferred."  In my understanding, that thickness was the original question.

Table 14-2 in AISC Manual, 13th Edition.  Base plate holes are oversized, washer holes are standard size.

I am trying to track down the recommended washer plate thickness for anchor rods.  Typically the holes are oversized and I am trying to find the thickness for the washers.  i assume it is some percentage of the rod diameter.  Can anyone direct me to where i can this info?
