- Settings entered on this window apply to the design of single-plate shear connections (shear tab connections) and shear tee connections and shear thru connections , but not shear plate moment connections.
- If needed, connection design may increase the bolt diameter or number of bolt rows that are entered here in order to allow the connection to stand up to heavier loading conditions.
- Depending on the selected " Connection design method ," connection design may fail shear connections with plate thicknesses more than 1/16 inch greater than half of the bolt diameter unless the box for " Design non-AISC single-plate shear connections " in Design Settings is checked.
- For the " Top of Steel to First Hole " on all types of shear connections, connection design uses the Schedule of Minimums for Structural Members instead of this schedule.

You can open this window using any one (1) of the following methods:
Method 1 : Home > Project Settings > Job > Design > Schedule of Minimums for Single Plate Shear Connections .
Methods 2, 3 & 4 : In Modeling or the Drawing Editor , choose Settings > Job Settings > Schedule of Minimums for Single Plate Shear Connections (classic), or use a keyboard shortcut , or click the icon.
Password protection: If a password has been set using the Change Setup Password utility, you can open this window only if you first enter that exact password.
For a shear plate or thru plate or shear tee, connection design determines the minimum diameter of bolt and minimum number of bolt rows based on the entries made here. For shear plate connections (but not thru plates or tees), the minimum thickness of plate material also comes from this table.
|Note : For single-plate shear connections, AISC specifies that the plate thickness be less than or equal to one-half the bolt diameter plus 1/16 of an inch. If material that is thicker than this specification is entered to this schedule, then the box for " Design non AISC single-plate shear connections " needs to be checked in order for that material to be applied.|
- To add a new line to the schedule, click in the first blank cell under the " Nominal Depth " column so that a cursor appears in the cell. Type in the nominal depth, then press the Tab key to go to the next cell (under the " Bolt Diameter " column). Make appropriate entries for each column in the line.
- To erase an entry, double-click to select the previous entry, then press the Backspace key.
- To edit an entry, double-click to select the previous entry, press the Backspace key, then type in your new entry.
- Tab moves the text insertion bar (cursor) forward one cell.
- Shift+Tab moves you back one cell on the table.
- The up arrow key moves you up one cell on the table.
- The down arrow key moves you down one cell on the table.

"OK" (or the Enter key) closes the schedule and saves the settings on it to the Job Settings file in your current Job.
Note: If you want changes to this window applied to particular members, you can Process Selected Members then Process and Create Solids . Or you can Mark Members for Processing then Process and Create Solids .
"Cancel" (or the Esc key or the button) closes this window without saving any changes that you may have made to it.
"Reset" undoes all changes made to this window since you first opened it. The schedule remains open.
