I am trying to find the calculation to figure out the minimum embedment needed. A project of ours has had the foundations poured and the GC noticed that all the Anchorbolts are extending anywhere from 5-1/2" to 8-1/2" above finished grade when only 3" was specified. All Bolts were suppose to be 1'10" embedment and know they are not. How do I go about figureing out if the 1'10" was the minimum depth needed. I normally dont deal with the anchor bolts but the guy that does is on vacation.
If you have any information I would appreciate it.
