In specifications for fabrication o

In specifications for fabrication of steel structures,I find one clause -" Bolted bracing length to be reduced by 1/1000 for draw", I did not understand this meaning.Kindly elaborate anybody ?

RE: In specifications for fabrication o

What is this specification from? I remember from a long time ago about specifying shims to limit the amount of "draw" required in a face-plate bolted connection. Draw meaning the pull together in tension of the joint on the bolted member. Your spec seems to limit this pull-up on the brace to the brace length divided by 1000. What kind of connection is this? The note may have been applied without the appliers knowing what it meant.

RE: In specifications for fabrication o

dear buggar,
thanks for quick reply
actually its just a sentence typed in specifications of fabrications.
but you have given me a better insight into this.
Good job. If I come across anything further in this regards, I will share.
Thank again. Marry Christmas Brother.
