Course Description

High strength bolting is a fundamental element in the construction of modern steel structures. A working knowledge of bolting design, fabrication, and installation techniques is essential during all aspects of the construction process including inspection. This presentation will advance your understanding of the theory and application of structural bolting and apply that knowledge to a variety of situations in transportation. This presentation will mostly focus on the inspection, installation, and testing of the bolts. Participants will learn receipt, storage, and documentation procedures, bolt conditions, tensioning procedures, capacity testing, installation procedures, post-installation inspection, and tower and light mast anchorage.
