RE: Typical Stud Size for Embedded Plate

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

If the plate was just taking light gravity loads, depending on the attaching member dimensions, I have used like 3/8"x8" square plates with (4)-1/2" DIA x 4" or 5" LG headed studs.

For heavier loads, I have added rebar behind the embed for panel reinforcement due to bending, and if the plate was taking lateral loads, I have also welded bent rebar to the plate to drag the load back into the width of the panel.

Subject: Typical Stud Size for Embedded Plate
Date: Thu, 18 Aug 2005 09:21:51 -0500

I?m looking to embed some plates in a concrete foundation wall to support some lightly loaded steel beams.  I would like to use headed studs welded to a plate.  What is the typical size of stud used for embedded plates?  What is typically used in precast or tilt-up panels for most common plates?  Is there a typical detail for rebar added in the local area of the studs?
