Anchor Bolt design in masonry will cover general anchor bolt design in masonry, will provide practical design tips, and show examples of anchor bolt design. Methods for determining the projected tension and shear area will be given. The two major changes to the anchor bolt design provisions in the 2016 edition of TMS 402 will be covered. These changes were to increase the calculated shear crushing strength by 67% and to go from a linear interaction equation for combined bending and shear to an elliptical interaction equation. Anticipated changes in the 2022 edition of TMS 402 related to anchor bolt tensile strength will be covered.
