Re: Foundation A.B. Capacity

Something to consider:  Regardless of being able to develop the anchor bolt's 
tensile    strength by anchorage into the concrete, check out how much 
concrete footing you're going to need to act as a gravity hold-down for that 
tension capacity;  that's one of the great overlooked aspects of using these 
massive hold-downs, far more strength than can ever be ultimately resisted by 
the dead load to which it attaches.
