BASE PLATE/BOLT CHECK - USER'S GUIDE - rev1 As part of standard pipe support allowable load calculations, support base

or end plate as well as anchor bolts, should be designed so as to resist tension, shear, and bending experienced by the support itself. This program is created to check adequacy of a given base plate details based on the calculated reactions to the base or end plate. (Note: Input required on all green boxes)

The values listed above are ultimate load capacities in kiloNewtons for carbon steel and stainless

steel power stud which should be reduced by a minimum safety factor of 4 to determine the allowable working load. 2 Strength of concrete is f'c = 2000psi

Design Procedure Calculate e (load eccentricity): e = Mx/N If e > D/6 + dt/3, tension governs on base plate Calculate x/d ratio: x/d = (e - 0.5D)/(D-dt) Calculate P: P = (Ab x Nb)/(BXd) Given the values of x/d and P, obtain value of Xn/d from the graph below:

Calculate Xn: Xn = (Xn/d) x d Anchor Bolt Check: 1. Check at tension: ft Ft, Ft = 120 Mpa ft = T/Ab T = Z/Nb When Expansion Anchor Bolt is required: 1. Check at tension, T Tallow 2. Check at shear, Q Qallow Note: Refer to allowable loads of Expansion Anchor Bolts above.

Z = N*(e-0.5D+xn/3) / (D-dt-xn/3)
2. Check at Shear: fv Fv, Fv = 70 Mpa fv = Q/Ab 3. Check at Combined Tension and Shear: 1.4fto - 1.6fv = fts; fts fto note: fto = Ft therefore, fts = 1.4Ft - 1.6fv Ft
