Reference Code for Joint of structural Members and elevator machines

Reference Code for Joint of structural Members and elevator machines

Reference Code for Joint of structural Members and elevator machines

(OP)
Hello Everyone,
I am looking for any code reference showing how all the bolts nut and washers should be used in bolt nut assembly. I know the purpose of all the parts separately but wondering if there is any reference which controls number/type of washers(lock/regular etc.)/nuts(jamb,thick etc.) I am supposed to use. Any help will be appreciated.
Thank You

Are you building bicycles, bulldozers, bridges or baby toys?

RE: Reference Code for Joint of structural Members and elevator machines

Yes...

Rather than think climate change and the corona virus as science, think of it as the wrath of God. Feel any better?

I'd recommend finding an engineer to run a bolted joint analysis.

I am attaching an elevator machine( traction elevator machine) to a W beam.
Thank you

@CWB1 Unfortunately that is not an option as I am an engineer in training.

RE: Reference Code for Joint of structural Members and elevator machines

you can search for a Machinery Handbook. it has all the nuts and bolts details...

When I say engineer in training it means I am a working professional who is new in career and has to gain 4years of experience to get P.eng.
it is a general question where I am looking for a ASME code which deals with the bolts and nut connections on machines
For example: If you are working with steel, you have AISC, you work with wood then there is CWC/CSA 086 and if you are working with elevators there is B44, you work with hoist then we have CMAA. I am just looking for a code reference

Thank you BEMPE

For the future, to receive better answers, I suggest you don't try to bait our users in your post title. They'll be a lot less hostile when they know what they're clicking on.

"Hello everyone, I am looking for some standards information on bolted connections."

I think what happened was the OP didn't add a title to the question when the post was created. The forum just takes the first few words you type in the body and uses them as the title when that happens. I've seen it before on here. Indolent, yes. Baiting, probably not.

All good, OP has been responsive in the post and that makes ho for everything.

RE: Reference Code for Joint of structural Members and elevator machines

ASME PCC-1 has this data for flanges.

There is also a welding bonding and fasteners forum which you should look at, but most of this is aimed at bolting fixed things, not machinery bolts which sometimes don't have axial force.

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

Oh I see..I wasn’t aware of title on questions. I will start adding titles on my question next time.
Thank you @littleinch & mintjulep
