Re: ASCE 41-06 and Epoxied or Expansion Anchors

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Thank you, Harold.  These are for seismic force transfer.
 More specifically, adding a steel plate across a tilt-up panel joint to
get added in-plane wall panel shear resistance.  Not that we are endorsing
any particular manufacturer, but we all know the "big boys" that have their
software available for all to use.

That being said, I get to take the governing failure mode (concrete
breakout strength), and increase the capacities by a factor of 1.0 /
(0.70*0.75).  I apologize if this haas been discussed prior.  I'm having a
diffiuclt time comparing apples (ASCE 7) to very unique and "newly
introduced apples (ASCE 41).

Again, thank you, Harold.  You are an invaluable resource for us on this
SEAINT list server.
