Re: Reference for screwed connections in structural steel

Look at the December issue of MSC magazine on page 9.  The topic is "Strength of a Tapped Hole".   We had this situation happened earlier this year and it became a problem of installing and tensioning a Gr 5 bolt into a less than A36 plate with limited thread length.

Seems similar to traditional type build-up of sections using rivets before welding available. Screws typically used with cold-formed steel, so resistances can be checked against cold-formed steel code.
