Base Anchorage

An anchorage of wall footing can be specified in the "Cantilever Wall" program. It is necessary to specify an anchor location, dimensions of a drill hole, and spacing of anchors.

Two limit states of bearing capacity are defined for an anchor:

  • bearing capacity against pulling-out Re [kN/m]
  • strength of anchor Rt [kN]

Base anchorage

Bearing capacities can be either input or computed from the input values using the following expressions:

where:

Tp

-

pull-out resistance

d

-

drill hole diameter

a

-

ultimate bond

SFe

-

safety factor against pulling-out

where:

Rt

-

strength of anchor

ds

-

anchor diameter

fy

-

yield strength of the anchor

SFt

-

safety factor against pulling-apart
