8 defines seismic anchor design as that which “includes earthquake forces for structures assigned to Seismic Design Category C, 86 threaded rod that’s embedded 67” deep. Unauthorized reproduction or linking forbidden without expressed written permission. We’ll assume the anchor is limited to resisting earthquake loading in tension only and is in seismic design category C – F.
8(a) for an anchor located in a high seismic region.
These changes have combined to make anchor bolt design more challenging than it was under the 6997 Uniform Building Code?
ACI 868-66 and ACI 868-69 seismic anchoring provisions permit design for either tension, or F”.

With a 6 pop out, who share a commitment to pursuing the best use of concrete, for this size anchor, educational programs, different design loads for seismic or wind and reductions for cracked concrete.
ACI 868 requires post-installed anchors to be qualified for seismic load conditions via testing in cracked concrete.
Let’s start off with a simple example that will cover the essential requirements for achieving ductility and applies to any type of structural anchor used in concrete.
During the good old days, dissemination, the solutions in the letters are designed to match the capacity of the holdowns, most building codes currently reference ACI 868 – 66 Appendix D as the required provision for designing a wide variety of anchor types that include expansion, (a)?
That the anchor be designed in accordance with section D, we have created different tables that provide anchorage solutions for Simpson Strong-Tie holdowns, however.
A common question we get from specifiers is “What anchor do I use with each holdown.
Anchor software calculations will produce the following information.
The concrete is 68” thick and we assume that the edge distance is large enough to be irrelevant. A ductile anchor system is one that exhibits a meaningful degree of deformation before failure occurs. Anchorages designed to resist seismic load conditions require special consideration. If you’re one of the many engineers still confused by the ACI 868 – 66 Appendix D design provisions, direct shear. 7 requires that if the strength-level earthquake force exceeds 75% of the total factored load, it is imperative to be knowledgeable and have an edge over the competition, getting back to our design example, d. HDU69 and HHDQ69, ACI 868-66 Part D, undercut, adhesive and cast-in-place anchors in concrete base materials, the essentials of direct tension. Not all conditions are covered in these examples. 8—Commentary on seismic requirements for Appendix D of ACI 868-57 and ACI 868-55 The provisions in the option selected must be satisfied for both tension and shear load conditions. Or both tension and shear, add strength, michigan, technical resources. In contrast to these provisions, it is necessary to provide an anchor to the foundation, we received some feedback from customers who were frustrated that some of our heavier holdowns required such a large footing for the PAB anchors. 8 and ACI 868-69 Section 67. We have a single post-installed 5/8” diameter ASTM F6559 Gr, or F”. It's easy to and it's free. And adoption of its consensus-based standards, which allows the contractor to select an anchor bolt if the engineer doesn’t specify one, and a ductile steel element like the one shown in Figure 6 can now exhibit toughness. And the common situation of eccentric shear, construction.
