Abstract

The main objective of this study was to determine the effect of an increased hole diameter on the structural behavior of high strength bolted connections. This study was limited to 3/4 inch diameter and 7/8 inch diameter bolts. Both butt and lap joints were considered in this investigation. Joints were made with a hole diameter 1/16 inch, 1/8 inch, 3/16 inch and l/4·inch greater than the nominal bolt diameter. Two bolt sizes were used along with varying plate thicknesses. To insure accurate results, each test was repeated three times.
