“This blog will help you to design base plates /anchor plates and anchor bots for fixed base connection with the customized excel sheet.It will help you to take design output very fast
For designing steel structures, design of connection plates and bolts and welding are essential part.Normally, in pre-engineered or conventional steel building, we have to assemble structural steel members at site, so we have to fabricate column with connection plate at it’s bottom at workshop.These columns with connection plates at it’s bottom is assembled with the anchor bolts or fastener which are properly placed at the top of concrete pedestal at site.For Fixed base connection, stiffeners are provided with the base plates whereas in pinned base connection, no stiffeners are provided. Therefore, as a structural engineer, we have to design the the thickness of connection plates,base plates, stiffener with it’s thickness & it’s sizes having number of bolts with diameter.
All Structural Engineers and students perusing civil engineering are invited to download excel design sheet for anchor base plate & bolts for fixed base connection as per IS:800(2007).
