The relationship between the basic mechanical parameters (apparent cohesion and apparent internal friction angle) of bolted concrete blocks in the residual shear strength stage and [r.sub.b] is shown in Figure 11.
As shown from Figure 11, although the residual shear strength of the bolted concrete blocks increases with any increase in the diameter of the bolt, two components of the residual shear resistance show the opposite trend with [r.sub.b].
Equations (4) and (5) could provide a direct reference for determining the shear resistance of a bolted rock mass, which would make the determination of reinforcing the effect of the bolt in a numerical simulation or theoretical analysis more simple and quantitative.
(2) The percentage drop in the peak shear strength of a concrete block after failure significantly decreases with an increase in bolt diameter, verifying the satisfying performance of the bolt on the residual shear strength of the bolted concrete block.
BOLTING CONTRACTORS should know all that is contained in PCC-1-2010 as a platform for excellence in their trade, which is to help solve problems associated with bolted flange joints.
Training all those associated with bolted flange joint assembly on the best practices contained in PCC-1-2010 is paramount in qualifying an individual for the assembly task.
As puzzles go, the assembly of bolted joints has many pieces including the variations of each component, service condition, and individual involved.
A mind-set of "First Time Right" is key to the success of the implementation of the entire bolted joint integrity programme.
The Hi-Force On-Site Bolting Services Division, managed from the Hi-Force UK Head Office, can now offer clients pre-start on-site surveys, full and comprehensive analysis of bolted joint needs and requirements, development of correct procedures, including all required bolted joint load calculations, on-site supervision, using ECITB qualified and trained supervisors, on-site bolted joint integrity training courses, for the nominated contractors technicians, full flange management control, utilising the Hi-Force BOLTRIGHT PRO calculation software and of course high quality UK manufactured bolting tools.
