Load Input for Base Plate and Anchor Bolt Shear Key Connection

 

Below is the detail explanation on base plate & anchor bolt design load inputs

 

Load case when base plate , column and ver brace are in compression
Pc1 , max axial compression force in ver brace when there is ver brace
Pc2 , max compresssion force on base plate. When there is ver brace, Pc2 is the resultant of ver brace Pc1 above and column axial Pc3 below
Pc3 , max axial compresssion force in column. It should be taken from the same load case as max Mx-x and My-y inputs below as it will be
       used to offset tensile force caused by moment in column-to-base plate weld design
       max shear force on base plate in X and Y direction
       max column base moment about X-X axis
       max column base moment about Y-Y axis
Load case when base plate , column and ver brace are in tension  Set all values to zero if there is no tension case
Pt1 , max axial tension force in ver brace when there is ver brace
Pt2 , max tension force on base plate. When there is ver brace, Pt2 is the resultant of ver brace Pt1 above and column axial Pt3 below
Pt3 , max column axial tension force. It will be used in column-to-base plate weld design
       max shear force on base plate in X and Y direction
