Re: Reference for screwed connections in structural steel

Thanks. I don't have the AISI S100 standard, but know it does address screw connections. Would or has anyone used this standard to analyze screwed connection in rolled steel sections?
It seems like this could be justified. Pullout values seem to be addressed from what I can see in the 2010 Supplement 2 (freely available in pdf from AISI.) In any case, the MSC forum refers the reader to the IFI, which is interesting. I'll see what I can find from the safety of my computer.

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.
