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.
