Anchor Bolt Design
March 8, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST$75
There were two major changes to the anchor bolt design provisions in the 2016 edition of TMS 402. One change was to increase the calculated shear crushing strength by 67%. The other change was to go from a linear interaction equation for combined bending and shear to an elliptical interaction equation. This webinar will cover the basis for these changes. In addition to the changes in TMS 402, ASCE 7-16 reduced the required load increase for seismic applications when the anchor bolt failure is not yielding from 2.5 to 2.0. The webinar will also cover general anchor bolt design in masonry, will provide practical design tips, and show examples of anchor bolt design.
- Understand the changes, and the basis for the changes, to anchor bolt design provisions in TMS 402.
- Understand the design of anchors bolts in tension.
- Understand the design of anchor bolts in shear.
- Understand the design of anchor bolts in combined tension and shear.
Speaker Bio: Richard Bennett, Ph.D, P.E. is a Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Tennessee. He is a member of the Board of Directors of The Masonry Society and a Fellow of The Masonry Society. Dr. Bennett has been very active on the TMS 402/602 Code Committee. He has chaired the Flexural, Axial Loads, and Shear subcommittee and served as the vice-chair of the 2013 MSJC Committee. Dr. Bennett was the chair of the main committee that is developed the 2016 code, and is currently 2nd vice-chair of the TMS 402/602 Code Committee. He is also a member of ASTM C12 on mortars and grouts and ASTM C15 on manufactured masonry units.
Speaker Bio: Luke A. Scoggins, S.E. (CA, WA), P.E. (AZ, OR), is a consulting engineer at CH2M with more than 10 years of experience providing structural design services for a variety of projects mostly in areas of civil infrastructure and industrial design. He specializes in the design of new and retrofit liquid-holding (hydraulic) concrete structures and building-structures of various materials for water and wastewater treatment facilities in high seismic regions. He currently participates on the TMS 402/602 Code Committee as a subcommittee corresponding member.
