Abstract of STRUCTURAL BOLTS, STEEL, HEAT TREATED, pomapted 120/105 KSI MINIMUM TENSILE STRENGTH oe STRUCTURAL BOLTING IFI NOTES: 1. ASTM A325 is a specification developed through the procedures of ASTM. A325 is under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee F-16 on Fasteners. 2. This abstract presents the chemical and mechanical requirements of two types of carbon and alloy steel bolts commonly known as “A325 high strength structural bolts.” It omits those requirements dealing with the number of tests and inspection, and a listing of referenced documents. For the omitted information, refer to the complete A325. 3. The paragraph numbers throughout this abstract are those of the complete A325-2002. 4. Refer to page E-1 for a discussion of high strength bolting. 5. ASTM A325-2002 is abstracted with permission from the Annual Book of ASTM Standards, copyright American Society for Testing and Materials, 100 Barr Harbor Drive, West Conshohocken, PA 19428-2959, U.S.A. 1.

These connections are cov- ered under the requirements of the Specifica- tion for Structural Joints Using ASTM A325 or ‘A490 Bolts, approved by the Research Council on Structural Connections; endorsed by the American Institute of Stee! Construction and by the Industrial Fasteners Institute. 4.3 The bolts are furnished in sizes 1/2 to 1-1/2in., inclusive. They are designated by type, denoting chemical composition as follows: 1-1/2 in,, but with similar mechanical properties. NOTE 2 —A complete metric companion to Specification ASTM A325 has been developed — Specification ASTM A325M; therefore no metric equivalents are presented in this specification. 1.4 This specification is applicable to heavy hex structural bolts only.
