Interesting, we have a similar detail that we use for support angles for
edge support of metal decking at CMU - but we place the web into a bed joint
with a welded anchor down into a bond beam. We use a welded plate
fabrication to form the T-section. We typically locate individual weld
plates at 4-ft oc and weld the deck support angle to the plate. 

For my current problem, I have recommended to our field engineer that the
CMU cells to receive drilled-in anchors have grout injected into the cells.
I haven't heard whether the Contractor has agreed to this approach.
