DETAILINGS FOR BOLTS REFERENCES:
-AISC Specification J3.3 indicates that the minimum distance (s) between the centers of bolt holes is 2 d b . A distance of 3db is preferred

-AISC Specification J3.5 indicates maximum edge distance for bolt holes is 12 times the thickness of the connected part (but not >150mm).
-For painted/unpainted members not subject to corrosion, the maximum spacing of bolt holes is 24 times the thickness of the thinner part but not > 300mm
-For painted/unpainted members subject to atmospheric corrosion, the maxim spacing of bolt holes is 14 times thickness of the thinner part but not > 175mm
