This study was aimed at defining the strength and behavior characteristics of single, high-strength structural bolts under static loadings of tension and shear. A total of 115 bolts were tested and the results were analyzed with consideration being given to such factors as location of the shear plane of loading, proportion of tension and shear loads, length of grip, bolt type and diameter, and type of material bolted. The results were compared with design equations now (1965) used in the United States.
