trying to analyze the connections on a transmission line tower that was designed in the 1950's. The bolts listed on the design drawings are not the typical type 1, 2, 3 etc. that we expect to see in present times. Instead, the bolts are listed as "ASTM-A394-55T". I am having trouble establishing a suitable shear capacity for these bolts. Any suggestions?
