Profis Anchor Version 1.10
This Profis Anchor User’s Manual was created to make the use of Hilti’s Profis Anchor easier for the end user. In order to make information on specific functions of Profis Anchor quickly accessible, this document has been divided into many very specific sections and subsections. When being used in electronic format, the manual has many hyperlinks that allow the reader to jump around the document quickly when another section is referenced. At the bottom of every page is a hyperlink that takes the reader back to the Table of Contents. From the Table of Contents, the reader can quickly hyperlink to a specific section of the manual. Profis Anchor is a connection design program developed to help the engineer distribute loads at a connection and select an appropriate anchor to carry these loads. Profis Anchor provides quick and easy access to anchor information, solutions to anchoring needs and the necessary information to specify Hilti medium to heavy-duty mechanical and chemical (adhesive) anchors. Through the preferences window, the user can select their default language as described in Section 126.96.36.199. The default language and other appropriate defaults based upon region may also be selected when first opening the Profis Anchor by selecting the appropriate region. This region may be changed as described in Section 188.8.131.52. With access to a vast database, Profis Anchor is able to accept a variety of input data in either metric or English System units, including dimensional constraints, physical properties, loads and anchor configuration. With this input, Profis Anchor is able to perform calculations that output the following:
• • • • • •
Suitability of selected anchors given design constraints1 The design load for each anchor selected The applicable edge and anchor spacing factors for the given design constraints The reason for failure to select an anchor, if any Recommended baseplate thickness given the design constraints2. Data in a choice of either English (in., lb) or metric units (mm, kN)
1. Suitability is determined by: (1) user-inputted loads being less-than-or-equal-to the published allowable load contained in the current Hilti Product Technical Guide (PTG), after application of PTG edge-distance and anchor-spacing load reduction factors for user-inputted dimensions; and (2) the application being “suitable” for the general type of user-inputted loading conditions, in accordance with the Anchor Selection Guide in the PTG. 2. Baseplate thickness based on finite element analysis. For additional details, click the “Help” tab in the Profis program, select “Methods”, and then “Finite Element”.
Profis Anchor provides the user the capability to design anchorages using data from the Hilti Product Technical Guide or from ICC-ES evaluation reports, as well as using ACI 318 Appendix D design provisions. Easy access to the published data, upon which this version of Profis Anchor is based, is explained in Section 3.3.3.

Pull-out Failure.2.1 of the UBC. 3. and the individual ICC-ES reports based on ICC-ES AC193 (The user may access these reports under the Approvals/Listings tab as described in Section 3.4. the tension checks are Steel Failure (15). The summary table in the ASD report show both tension and shear results. Pull-out Failure (16).4. The LRFD report provides a summary table for both tension (14) and shear (18). and Concrete Cone Failure (17). 3. the top of the page has a tabulated description of how the loads are distributed to each anchor.2.4). the results output is slightly different. Section 1605. The phi factors from ACI 318-02 D.4.1.3. Note: The LRFD governing load is determined using the load factors from the current ACI 318-02 Chapter 9. 14 Below the tension summary table are the details of the individual tension failure mode checks as per ACI 318 Appendix D.1 of the IBC. Therefore.2.4 for a glossary of terms for this section. Like the ASD report.4. The second page and subsequent pages of the LRFD report is similar to the second page of the ASD report.2 LRFD Report (ACI 318/AC193) If the user runs a calculation using the ACI318/AC193 method.4 are used as appropriate. However. The first summary table is for tension (14). the report generated will be based upon LRFD capacities and will be set up in the manner described in the following subsections.1 First Page (Anchor and Input Overview) The first page of the LRFD report is identical to the first page of the ASD report discussed in Section 3. As stated above.2. the user quickly sees the results of the tension checks done by Profis Anchor required by ACI 318 Appendix D (Steel Failure.1. 15 16 17 36 of 40 Back to Table of Contents .4.2 Second (and subsequent) Page (Results) Please refer to Section 3.10 User's Manual 3.

and Concrete Edge Failure (21). The checks are Steel Failure (19).75 phi factor. Pryout Failure. is the Steel Strength in Tension. the shear summary table quickly presents the results of the different failure mode checks for shear (Steel Failure. also given in the Design Information table. An example problem can be found under the Help Menu by selecting Example Calculations. 18 Below the shear summary table are the details of the individual shear failure mode checks. .5. 19 20 21 37 of 40 Back to Table of Contents . Profis Anchor also checks for shear bending (refer to Section 3.65 phi factor. Like the tension summary table. taken from the Design Information table in the ICC-ES report and adjusted for concrete strength. multiplied by the 0. taken from the Design Information table in the ICC-ES report.2 and the individual ICC-ES reports. ). Pryout Failure (20). is the appropriate (cracked or uncracked concrete) Pullout Strength.6 for more details on stand-off calculations). the user can see the summary table for shear (18).10 User's Manual Note: Steel and Pull-out failure are checked for the anchor with the highest applied load as shown in the tabulated distribution of loads. After the details of the tension failure mode checks. The Tension Pull-out Failure capacity. If a stand-off is specified.3. If the capacity given is for the highest loaded anchor.2. Concrete failure is checked for the entire connection. and Concrete Edge Failure or Breakout). multiplied by the 0.2. . it is denoted with a superscript “h” (e.1.g.

Therefore. this is also where the recommended baseplate thickness would be reported.2. .3.Profis Anchor Version 1. also given in the Design Information table.65 phi factor. 38 of 40 Back to Table of Contents . is the appropriate (seismic or no seismic) Steel Strength in Shear. An example problem can be found under the Help Menu by selecting Example Calculations. Note: The dimensions are given from the centroid of the baseplate. multiplied by the 0. after all of the details showing the check for the LRFD calculation. NOTE: Profis Anchor uses the least conservative of the two equations for the check. 23 3. are calculated according to ACI 318 Appendix D and the individual ICC-ES reports. 22 Finally. the Shear Concrete Failure capacity will be checked only if a different edge distance is input by the user.4.). If the user chose to have Profis Anchor calculate a recommended baseplate thickness as described in Section 3. The allowable loads are calculated by dividing the controlling failure mode capacity by the α-factor provided in the individual ICC-ES reports for the anchor. due to the nature of the calculations given in ACI 318 Appendix D.000 mm (394 in. The Shear Pryout Failure capacity. .2. and Shear Concrete Edge Failure capacity. the input of large edge distances can result in very large Shear Concrete Edge Failure capacities for single edge conditions (in which case Shear Steel Failure or Shear Pryout Failure would most likely control).10 User's Manual The Shear Steel Failure capacity of the highest loaded anchor. the report presents the allowable tension and shear capacities for the anchorage (23). The default edge distances in Profis Anchor are greater than 10. Note: Profis Anchor stops calculating Shear Concrete Edge Failure capacity when the edge distance is greater than 10.3 Final Page (Baseplate Details) The final page simply provides a “shop drawing” of the baseplate. Under the shear details is a table (22) showing the combined tension and shear load check using either the 5/3 exponent or the tri-linear method.
