For bolts through concrete, loaded in double shear (equal both sides), and far from any edge, what design procedure would you follow? Assuming the bolt is cast in, or otherwise completely encased within the concrete matrix, would bending of the bolt have to be considered? Concrete bearing would obviously be important, but over what length of the bolt? Would edge failure of the concrete control, even if steel side plates restrain the concrete? Sorry to be so general, but just looking for advice on how others would approach the design.
