Shear loads perpendicular to slotted holes

Shear loads perpendicular to slotted holes

In some applications it can be advantageous to arrange individual anchors in a group in slotted holes. If, for example, a fastening is loaded by a shear force in the direction of the edge of the component, the characteristic resistance for concrete edge failure is significantly increased if the anchors near the edge are positioned in slotted holes (Figure 1a). However, elongated holes can …
