Please tell me how to find?

Samm said: (Aug 1, 2016)  
As per which code? Explain.

Shailza said: (Aug 6, 2016)  
Clause 8.10.2 IS 800:1984 (37mm + 4t).

Baloch said: (Nov 10, 2016)  
Here, 1.5d (d= gross dia).

Sanjay said: (Jan 19, 2017)  
But how? Explain in detail.

Latha said: (Apr 6, 2017)  
How? Explain in detail.

Aradhana said: (Jun 30, 2017)  
How to find 4t? Explain.

Arnab Bhattacharyya said: (Jan 2, 2018)  
Now, as per IS :800 :2007 it is 40mm +4t clause

Dhanu said: (Jan 3, 2018)  
It is maximum edge distance.

Chandu said: (Mar 20, 2018)  
For minimum edge distance = 1.5d (for machine cut),
= 1.7d (for hand cut).

For maximum edge distance = 37mm +4t.

Raj said: (Sep 1, 2018)  

It is the minimum edge distance in the case of bolting.

Pankaj said: (Oct 16, 2018)  

Here, asking about minimum not maximum and the maximum edge distance is 12tmin*250/fy.

Talib said: (Dec 7, 2018)  
If dua of the rivet is given then it must be 1.5d but it is given a thickness of the plate and the answer is correct.

Vasu said: (Feb 23, 2019)  
As per IS 800_1984.

MAXIMUM edge distance 37mm+4t.

Jazz said: (Dec 20, 2019)  
By is 800:2007 clause e max is 40mm + 4t.

Md.Afaruddin said: (Apr 11, 2020)  
How? Please explain.

Md.Zafaruddin said: (Apr 11, 2020)  
How explain? clearly

Pramit Samanta said: (Jun 17, 2020)  
Max gauge length is 100 + 4t or 200.
Max edge 12 (τ).
Max edge for corrosion 40 + 4t.
