RE: Typical Stud Size for Embedded Plate

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

If it is lightly loaded you could go down to 1/4" studs with 1/4" plate. I like to use the same thickness of plate as the studs. (That is not an absolute, but it keeps me out of trouble) Precast and tilt-up is generally heavier, and I would not use it as an example of a light connection plate. You can use either studs or "deformed bar anchors". Both can be shot on. Do not weld rebar to plates. Use "deformed bar anchors" (DBA's).

Check out:
for standard sized of studs or DBA's.

I like to allow at lease 2" on the side for misplacement of the embed plate. If you have the room, you can add a couple of #4's in each direction parallel to the embed plate to intercept the failure plane of the shear cone.

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?
