concrete blocks reinforced with fully grouted rock bolts with a small scale double shear assembly.
Rotational self-loosening of bolted
joint is one of the predominant failure modes, especially for bolts under vibration loading.
This study evaluated the minimum end distance and bolt spacing for bolted

Conventional pump installations typically consist of a steel reinforced concrete block foundation with an anchor bolted
and grouted metal pump base plate.
The sacrificial component is the steel bearing track bolted
to the machine frame sides, which requires specific adjustment and torque ranges to maintain bearing pre-loading and alignment of the moving ram.
