Re: embed plate design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
There is really a simple solution if you just look at
the problem differently.

The provisions in Appendix D are primarily written for
mass concrete with little or no reinforcing.  If you
have enough reinforcing in your member to resist the
forces if they can be developed, you should have
little to no problem.  

The secret is to make use of the strut and tie
provisions.  The anchors are considered as ties that
have a head on the end embedded in the concrete.  You
then define a compression strut that can be used to
engage stirrups or other bars in the reinforced
section.
