Structural Bolting Handbook, 2016 Edition


This 2016 edition of the Structural Bolting Handbook is based principally upon the June 2014 edition of the RCSC Specification for Structural Joints Using High-Strength Bolts, cited by the 2010 AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings (AISC 360-10). However, significant changes regarding structural bolting were implemented by the 2016 AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings (AISC 360-16) that are not addressed by the 2014 RCSC Specification, including:

  • An increase in STD bolt hole diameter and SSL and LSL slot width for bolts 1 inch diameter and above
  • Recognition of the new ASTM F3125 standard, which consolidates and replaces ASTM A325, A325M, A490, A490M, F1852 and F2280
  • Increased minimum bolt pretensions for A325 bolts of 1-1/8 inch diameter and greater, which also affects pre-installation verification testing
  • Introduction of new AISC Group C bolts with 200 ksi tensile strength, ASTM F3043 and ASTM F3111
