I think I have a PDF of the 2nd edition of this design guide. If I can find it, I will email it to you.

Design Guide 1: Base Plate and Anchor Rod Design (2nd Edition) has been taken off the AISC website. AISC now says:

"We are currently working on the third edition of  Design Guide 1, Base Plate and Anchor Rod Design.
The Second Edition of this design guide is no longer available."

Gerard, which AISC might I find a method in?


Use an AISC method.

            Is anyone able to provide me with a sample calc for anchoring a brace frame base plate to concrete.  The uplift load I have is 335 kips. I have worked on it but the size I obtain for the grade beam size to resist the uplift load in breakout seems quite high.  I have to use a 6’6” grade beam and embed the anchors at least 60 inches in order to get it to work.   Any feedback would be great.   Thank you.
