Anchor Failure modes

Step 03 : Anchor Specification

Aanchor Bolt =ASTM F1554 Grade 55 Material ductile steel

Specified tensile strength of anchor steel, futa= 75000 psi

Specified yield strength of anchor steel, fya= 55000 psi
Compressive strength of base material, f'c= 3005 psi

Step 04 : Edge distance and spacing of bolts

The minimum edge distance for post-installed anchors should be based on the greater of the minimum
cover requirements in ACI 318 Section 7.7 or minimum edge distance requirements for the products
as determined by tests in accordance with ACI 355.2 (Table A.3), and should not be less than two times
the maximum aggregate size. (Reference D 8.3)
Considering aggregate size as 3/4 inch edge distance =2*3/4=1.5 inch
Edge distance in the dirrection of shear has been considered as 4hef (Reference D8.6)
Spacing of anchors has been taken as 6do (Reference D8.1) d0=is the diameter of anchor

Step 05 :Design for Tension

5.1: Steel design strength under tensile loading

considering 0.750 inch dia of bolt (5/8inch or 16mm dia bolt)

Nsa= *Ase*futa, where, Ase=Effective shear stress area (Ref: ACI 355.3r-11, Table A.3)
Ase= 0.334 Nsa= 18.7875 Kip for single bolt.

5.2: Cocrete Breakout strength under tensile loading

Anchors are attached with beam and column.

Minimum dimension of column/beam 10 inch
Minimum hef =2/3 of minimum dimension or (minimum dimension-4 inch)
Considering both case hef = 7 inch
Ca (minimum edge distance) has been taken a 3.5 inch
Ca<1.5hef s1=6d0= 4.5 inch s2=6d0= 4.5 inch
Anc=(ca1+s1+1.5hef)*(ca2+s2+1.5hef)=(3+3.75+1.5*6)*(3+3.75+1.5* 342.25 Sq inch
Anc0=9*hef^2= 441 sq inch

Page 03

Nb=17*sqrt(2255)*6^1.5 = 17259.1 D 5.2.2

Since the bracing is loaded diagonaly so all the bolts are subjected to shear. So effect of ececntricity can

ecN= 1

edN= 0.8

Considering cracking in service load levels

c,N= 1

Page 04
Considering cracking in service load levels
cp,N= 1

Ncbg= 10715.52 Pound

10.72 Kip

= 0.55

For category2 condition B

So Ncb 5.89 Kip

Page 05
5.3: Cocrete Pullout strength under tensile loading

Nominal pullout strength for post installed anchors, Npn=cpNp

5 9617
8 19463
when hef= 7
Np= 16181 lb (Ref: ACI 355.3r-11, Table A.3)

So Design pullout strength,Np= 8899.55 Pound

So, Design Tension Force of single anchor Npn= 12.46 Kip

5.4: Cocrete Side Face blowout under tensile loading (Not considered)

So Tension strength
Steel tensile strength nsa= 18.7875 Kip
Concrete Break out strength Ncb 5.89 Kip Governs
Concrete Pullout Strength Np= 12.46 Kip

Step 06 :Design for Shear

6.1: Steel strength of anchor in shear

Nominal strength in shear of a single anchor,Vsa=0.6*Ase*futa
But futa should not be greater than 1.9fya or 125000psi
so, futa= 75000 psi
Ase= 0.334 Sq inch (Ref: ACI 355.3r-11, Table A.3)
= 0.65 for shear
so vsa= 9769.5 Pound
9.77 Kip

Page 06

6.2:Concrete breakout of anchor in shear

Since the bracing is loaded diagonaly so all the bolts are subjected to shear. So effect of ececntricity can

ec,v= 1

Ca2 3.5 inch

Ca1 3.5 inch
so Ca2<1.5Ca1

ed,v= 0.9

Avc0= 55.125 Sq inch
Avc= 55.125 Sq inch

Page 07

c,v= 1
le=hef= 7 inch or le< 8do 6
so le = 6 inch
Ca 3.5 inch
d0 0.750 inch
f'c 3005 Psi

Vb 3298.154

= 0.55

For category2 condition B

Vcbg= 2968.339 pound

2.97 Kip

Page 08

6.3:Concrete prayout strenght of anchor in shear

hef=6 inch > 2.5 inch

Kcp= 2

Ncbg 10.72 Kip

Vcpg= 21.43 Kip

So Tension strength
Steel shear strength Vsa= 9.77 Kip
Concrete Break out strength Vcbg= 2.97 Kip Governs
Concrete Prayout Strength Vcpg= 21.43 Kip

Step 07 :Calculation of bolt arrangemets

Horizontal component of load Fx= 292.7 Kip
Vertical component of load Fy= 156.6 kip

Anchor bolt tension capacity = 5.89 Kip

Anchor bolt Shear capacity = 2.97 kip

So placing 34 bolts in horizontal dirrection

and placing 34 bolts in vertical dirrection
Horizontal capacity= 301.3 kip which is OK
Vertical capacity = 301.3 kip which is OK
Page 09

Step 08 :Interaction of tensile and shear forces

Load on a single anchor in Horizontal face

Shear Vua=(Horizontal component - no of vertical boltsX tension capacity)/No of horizontal bolts

Tension Nua=(Vertical component - no of vertical boltsX shear capacity)/No of horizontal bolts

Vua= 2.7 Kip

Nua= 1.64 Kip

Nua/Nn+Vua/Vn= 1.193055
