The Column Base Plate & Anchor Bolt Design module is a standalone check for the design of column base plates and anchor bolts.
The "Column Base Plate & Anchor Bolt" SCIA Design Form is powerful tool allowing for any combination of:
Geometry (plate/concrete support size)
Anchorage (bolts/plate embedment/friction)
Support for HSS profiles
Biaxial design capabilities (Coming Soon)
The module utilizes the unique features of SCIA Design Forms to include various levels of output (summary/detailed/table) and also dynamic graphics (plan/elevation views). Finally, all required limit states of AISC 360-10 Specification Section J (base plates) and ACI 318-11 Appendix D (anchorage) are satisfied.
The output is completely transparent so you can see and verify the mathematics. The output can be shown as a brief summary of the results or detailed to include all the formulas that were used to derive the results.
Best of all the check can be linked to SCIA Engineer's FEA workflow. When linked, input values (e.g., loads, internal forces, etc.) can be pulled directly from SCIA Engineer's 3D FEA analysis model. Results from the calculation are displayed graphically on the 3D model, and the detailed calculation output can be integrated into the Engineering Report.
