The function of anchor bolts is to transfer loads to the masonry from attachments such as ledgers, sills, and bearing plates. Both shear and tension are transferred through anchor bolts to resist design forces such as uplift due to wind at the top of a column or wall or vertical gravity loads on ledgers supporting joists or trusses The magnitude of these loads varies significantly with the application.
