"CIRCBASE" --- STEEL COLUMN CIRCULAR BASE PLATE ANALYSIS

Program Description:
"CIRCBASE" is a spreadsheet program written in MS-Excel for the purpose of analy
sis of steel column base
plates. Specifically, pipe columns base plates may be subjected to axial loads
(compression only), with or
without column bending, plus shear. Base plate bearing pressure is checked as w
ell as bolt tension, if
applicable. If shear is present, bolt shear as well as interaction of bolt tens
ion and shear, if applicable, are
calculated. Finally, a propoesed base plate thickness is is checked.

This program is a workbook consisting of two (2) worksheets, described as follow

Complete method Circular base plate analysis

Program Assumptions and Limitations:

1. This program follows the procedures and guidelines of "Design of Monopole B
ases", by Daniel Horn, P.E.
2. This program follows the procedures and guidelines of the AISC 9th Edition
Allowable Stress (ASD) Manual
(2nd Revision, 1995) for round hollow structural tube & column base plates
subjected to flexure.
3. For steel interaction of anchor bolt tension and shear, this program follow
s:
Appendix D of ACI 318-02, "Building Code Requirements For Structural Concr
ete"
4. For concrete bearing, this program follows:
Section 10.17 of ACI 318-02, "Building Code Requirements For Structural Co
ncrete"
5. User has option to take out some of the total shear though friction between
column base and grout based
on column dead load and coefficient of friction, thus reducing amount of s
hear to be taken by anchor bolts.
6. Additional assumptions used in this program are as follows:
a. The column is centered on a circular base plate in both directions
.
b. The column & base plate are centered on a round pedestal in both d
irections.
b. Axial column load, 'P' > 0 for the case with moment.
7. This program contains numerous comment boxes which contain a wide variety of i
nformation including
explanations of input or output items, equations used, data tables, etc.
