Re: Base Plate design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Alexander;

Thanks for the response.  The PDF you provided is essentially the same as what is in the design guide.  In case D, what they call 'uplift' is when you have a tensile load on the one side of the anchor rods, not a net uplift on the column itself.

But i like the idea of analyzing the plate for just moment, and then add in the uplift forces.

Thanks for responding.

You may wish to read this paper in Engineering Journal '99:

The case D described in the paper deals with both uplift force and moment.

As far as I understand, the problem is not with principal scheme of
the joint but with defining loads on anchor bolts/foundation. I think
you could do an analysis with only the moment applied, and then
distribute the axial tension among the bolts.
