Abstract Anchor bolts in heavy machines of metallurgical plants are often, from the point of view of their carrying capacity, limiting factor in increasing productivity. This paper presents some possibilities of increasing strength of anchor bolts using numerical and experimental methods of mechanics. Proposed and verified procedures allow determining the actual stress states during tightening the anchor bolts and nuts and reduce dynamic loads in bolts as well as in operating machines.
