Mark: This column lists the piecemarks ( member piecemarks ) of members with field bolts that are in the particular erection view that is listed on top of the same page of this report. All members with field bolts that are in the erection view are listed in this column. If ' Supported ' had been selected for " Field bolts listed on which members ", then the piecemarks of supported members (beams, braces, etc.) are listed. If ' Supporting ' was selected, the column lists supporting members (columns, beams, etc.). A piecemark may be listed twice (or more) if a member with that piecemark has more than one group of field bolts.
Length: The distance from the inside of the bolt head to the end of the shaft. The program does not include head thickness in its calculation of bolt length because head thickness may vary among bolt manufacturers.
This column also includes the bolt type if ' Bolt Material & Type ' was selected for Home > Project Settings > Fabricator > Bolt Detailing Settings > " Bolt designation shown in reports ."
Generally field bolts are shipped loose to the construction site. Each line in a Field Bolts by Erection View report lists the quantity, size and length of field bolts required to erect one (1) member with a particular piecemark.
