Base Plate and Anchor Rod Design Example Using ASDIP STEEL

By: Javier Encinas, PE | May 2, 2018 ASDIP STEEL is a structural engineering software for design of steel members and components. ASDIP STEEL includes the design of base plates and anchor rods based on the latest AISC / ACI 318 provisions. The design of anchor rods may become cumbersome and time-consuming, since it involves checking multiple failure modes in tension and shear, and then the interaction of both. This document is a step-by-step design example of a typical base plate / anchorage using ASDIP STEEL. As an example, let's consider the base plate of a [...]

ASDIP STEEL: Base Plate and Anchor Rod Design

By: Javier Encinas, PE | January 30, 2016 ASDIP STEEL includes the design of base plates as well as the anchorage system. This blog post covers the principal design steps. This structural engineering software is based on the AISC Design Guides # 1, Blodgett "Design of Welded Structures", and the ACI 318-11 Appendix D. Base plates are structural elements at the bottom of columns to spread the concentrated load over a larger supporting area, so that the bearing stresses are under the acceptable limits. Depending on the type of frame the column belongs to, the base plate may be subject to compression, [...]
