Base Plate for Moment Frame-Shear Transfer

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Dear Sir,
The most common method to transfer shear force from base plate to footing is to weld
an L profile ( shear key ) under the base plate and to form a rectangular cavity on the R.C. footing to enable the leg of the L profile go in it. The dimension of the cavity should big enough to provide adequate bond between steel plate and grout to be applied. Without using a shear key, it would be difficult to cope with this problem. You may need large diameter bolts as it will subject to both tension and shear known as combined load.
