RE: high uplift base plate connections

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

Sorry I haven’t been following this thread but can you attach down the sides of your concrete with side plates.  I’ve done that when my wall is too thin for the anchor design prescription.

            I am mostly concerned with the breakout of the concrete, I have designed the base plate using stiffeners to decrease the bending on the plate itself, and obtain a fair thickness for the plate.  However, the concrete is what I am having trouble getting to work in breakout.  Unfortunately, I don’t have much room to widen the concrete grade beam…any thoughts?
