Define base Plates and Anchor rod?

Base plates and anchor rods are often the last structural steel items to be designed but the first items required on the job site . Therefore the design of the column base plate and connections are part of the critical path.

How to Calculate Base Plate Thickness?

Base Plate Thickness calculator uses Base Plate Thickness=2*Maximum Cantilever Dimension*(sqrt(Bearing Pressure on Base Plate/Yeild Strength of Base Plate)) to calculate the Base Plate Thickness, The Base Plate Thickness formula is generally used to distribute column loads over a large enough area of supporting concrete construction that the design bearing strength of the concrete is not exceeded. Base Plate Thickness and is denoted by tp symbol.

How to calculate Base Plate Thickness using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Base Plate Thickness, enter Maximum Cantilever Dimension (l), Bearing Pressure on Base Plate (fp) and Yeild Strength of Base Plate (Fy) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Base Plate Thickness calculation can be explained with given input values -> 1414.214 = 2*0.5*(sqrt(100000000/50000000)).

FAQ

What is Base Plate Thickness?
The Base Plate Thickness formula is generally used to distribute column loads over a large enough area of supporting concrete construction that the design bearing strength of the concrete is not exceeded and is represented as tp=2*l*(sqrt(fp/Fy)) or Base Plate Thickness=2*Maximum Cantilever Dimension*(sqrt(Bearing Pressure on Base Plate/Yeild Strength of Base Plate)). Maximum Cantilever Dimension is defined as the maximum value among Cantilever Dimensions and n equivalent cantilever dimension, Bearing Pressure on Base Plate is defined as the bearing pressure aciting on the base plate and Yeild Strength of Base Plate is defined as.
How to calculate Base Plate Thickness?
The Base Plate Thickness formula is generally used to distribute column loads over a large enough area of supporting concrete construction that the design bearing strength of the concrete is not exceeded is calculated using Base Plate Thickness=2*Maximum Cantilever Dimension*(sqrt(Bearing Pressure on Base Plate/Yeild Strength of Base Plate)). To calculate Base Plate Thickness, you need Maximum Cantilever Dimension (l), Bearing Pressure on Base Plate (fp) and Yeild Strength of Base Plate (Fy). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Maximum Cantilever Dimension, Bearing Pressure on Base Plate and Yeild Strength of Base Plate and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
How many ways are there to calculate Base Plate Thickness?
In this formula, Base Plate Thickness uses Maximum Cantilever Dimension, Bearing Pressure on Base Plate and Yeild Strength of Base Plate. We can use 2 other way(s) to calculate the same, which is/are as follows -
