Design of Base Plate For Angle Leg


Axial loading:
Base Plate Available Area ( A )

A =BxD

A = 300 x 300
90000
A = 90000 mm²

Axial stress ( fc )
fc = P / A

fc = 1075 / 90000
1.19
fc = 1.19 kg/cm²

Allowable Bending Stress

Fb = 0.66 x Fy

Fb = 0.66 x 240 1614.68

Fb = 1614.68 kg/cm²

Base plate required thickness for Axial Loading ( treq )

treq = SQRT(3 x fc x L² / Fb )

treq = SQRT( 3 x 1.19 x 68 ² / 1614.68 )


3.2
treq = 3.2 mm

Hence Given thickness of base plate is sufficient for axial loading

Combined effect of axial loading and bending:


Moment at base plate ( M ) :

M = Shear on leg x Length of leg


M = Vleg x Lleg

M = 675 x 1625 1096875

M = 1096875 kg-mm

Ecentricity ( e ) :

e=M/P

e = 1096875 / 1075 1020.35

e = 1020.35 mm

As e > D/6, Loading Condition #2:Condition of partial compression, Hence there is Uplift

Calculating factors

Y³ + k1Y² + k2Y + k3 = 0

Above Eqn equals to zero hence value of Y = 64.417 64.41683

Tension force ( T ) :

T = (-)P( ( 0.5D - Y/3 - e )/(0.5D - Y/3 + f))

T = (-)1075 ( ( 150 - 21.47 - 1020.35 ) / ( 150 - 21.47 + 86 ) )

T= 4468.87 kg 4469

Moment ( Mt) :

Mt = T x ( 0.5D + f - Y )

Mt = 4468.87 x ( 150 + 86 - 64.417 ) 766782.9

Mt = 766782.87 kg-mm

Bearing Pressure ( fc ) : Page no:- 118

fc = 2 ( P + T ) / (Y x B)

fc = 2( 1075 + 4468.87 ) / ( 64.42 x 300 ) 0.57

fc = 57 kg/cm²

Equivalent Bearing pressure ( f1 ) :

f1 = fc x ( Y - a ) / Y

f1 = 57 x ( 64.42 - 62 ) / 64.42 ) 2.14

f1 = 2.14 kg/cm²

Moment ( Mc ) :

Mc = a² x B ( f1 + 2fc) / 6

Mc = 62² x 300 ( 2.14 + 114 ) / 6 223221.08

Mc = 223221.08 kg-mm

Requird thickness of Base plate ( treq )

treq = SQRT(6 x Max(Mt,Mc) / (B x Fb))

treq = SQRT( 6 x 766782.87 / ( 300 x 1614.68 ) 30.82

treq = 30.82 mm

Hence Provided baseplate is sufficient for the given conditions

Design of Anchor Bolt for uplift

Tensile Stress in Anchor Bolt ( Ft )

Ft = T / (Nt x As)

Ft = 4468.87 / ( 1 x 390.781747672904 ) 112.18

Ft = 112.18 N/mm²

Provided Anchor Bolt is sufficient
