Abstract

Twenty-one bolted joints were tested to determine the effect of oversize holes and slotted holes on the slip behavior and ultimate strength of bolted joints. Hole sizes studied had standard, 1/4-in. and 5/16-in. clearances. Slots placed both parallel and transverse to the line of load were studied. All joints were of A36 steel plate fastened by 1-in. A325 bolts. The studies indicated that a washer is desirable under the turned element to prevent severe galling.
