Reinforcing for Anchor Bolt Breakout

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

Are there any practical ways to reinforce a footing for concrete breakout of anchor bolts as defined in ACI appendix D, section 5.2?  If Break Out is the controlling factor in the design of the anchor, and I don’t want to design the footing thickness based on anchor bolts, what would be a reinforcing configuration to strengthen the breakout capacity?


Thanks for any insight.
