Blue Book Article 12.04.030

The subject of this article is the anchorage of wood-frame sill plates on structural walls in light-frame construction. Wood-frame shear walls have traditionally been connected to concrete foundations with cast-in anchor bolts or postinstalled anchors in accordance with varied local practices. At shear wall locations, substantial loads are assumed to load the anchor bolts in pure shear parallel to the concrete edge.
