Rick, For the half pyramid that they are talking about, try to envision this for a single anchor: Take the location of the anchor at the top surface as one point of the "half pyramid". From that point, draw two lines that are at a 35 deg angle (using the edge of the concrete as the reference) out to the edge. This should result in a triangle on the surface of the concrete that has a height of c1 (the edge distance) and a base of 3*c1 (1.5c1 in each direction from center of anchor where it crosses the surface). Now, on the edge surface, draw a line 1.5*c1 down from the top surface edge that is parallel to the base of that triangle (which is also the top surface edge). This should create a rectangle shape the is 3*c1 wide and 1.5*c1 high on the edge surface. Now, connect the lower right hand corner of the rectangle to the original point on the surface (where the anchor is) and do the same for the lower left hand corner. That is you failure "cone". To describe it another way using a 3D coord system...assign the location of the anchor as it intersects the top surface as the origin (0,0,0). Make the x-axis parallel to the edge of the concrete surface and the y-axis perpendicular to the axis (with positive going from anchor to edge) and the z-axis paraller (same) as the axis of the anchor (positive going from anchor down into concrete). The failure cone would then be defined by the following points: (0,0,0), (1.5*c1,c1,0), (-1.5*c1,c1,0), (1.5*c1,c1,1.5*c1), and (-1.5*c1,c1,1.5*c1). That above failure cone assumes that the anchor is far enough away from a second side (i.e. not at a corner where c2 is the distance to the second edge and c2 would be less than 1.5*c1) or third side. It also assumes that the thickness of the concrete is greater than 1.5*c1. And it also assumes only one anchor. The resulting projected surface on the edge (the rectangle) is Av0 which equals 4.5*c1^2, which would equal Av _IF_ the above conditions are meant. If the conditions vary, then the projected surface would change and Av would no longer equal Av0 (it would be smaller), except if strictly dealing with multiple anchors. If multiple anchors are present (in a line parallel to the edge), then the single point described above becomes to points connected by a line of length equal to the spacing (thus, the base of the now trapazoid rather than triangle is increases by that same distance...i.e. the base becomes 1.5*c1+x*s1+1.5*c1, where s1 is the anchor spacing and x is the number of anchors minus one). Thus, Av is the actual projected rectangle on the edge surface when factoring the edge conditions and spacings, while Av0 is the projected rectangle on the edge surface without other edges being to too close. So, again, if the other edges don't affect the anchor, then Av will be the same as Av0. This is all show quite well in Fig. RD.6.2.1 of Appendix D of ACI 318-02. So if the above verbal description doesn't do it for you, then I suggest that you attempt to get a look at that figure.
