I am currently designing a foundation for Oxygen Gas tank foundations. These tanks will not be installed in a seismic region and will be designed for 80 mph wind speeds. The actual design of the foundation is straight forward but there appears to be a special bolt imbed that allows for the slight maneuvering of the bolt to adjust for placement misalignments. The imbed is approximately 10"-12" long and attached to the inside bottom of what would be similar to a metal can with a 3"-4" radius. The attachment to the bottom of the can is extremely stiff but can be "persuaded" to move the top of the bolt slightly to align with the tank skirt bolt holes. The entire "can" is embedded into the concrete flush with the top of the foundation. Does anybody know if this is a standard market item or did an engineer come up with a unique approach that would not have been tested. If it is a market item, where/who would I need to locate these items.
