This calculator will determine the variables for a Concrete Anchor subjected to Tension Pullout Force per ACI 318-02.

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) has adopted “Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete ACI 318-02 and ACI 318R-02” as a construction standard in 2001. For the design of members, the Code also introduces new concepts of “compression-controlled” and “tension-controlled” sections. The code covers the design and construction of structural concrete used in buildings and other structural applications.

INPUT DATA & DESIGN SUMMARY
CONCRETE STRENGTH
fc' =
ksi
SPECIFIED STRENGTH OF FASTENER fut = ksi
   (The strength of most fastenings is likely to be controlled by the embedment strength rather
     than the steel strength, so it is usually economical to use ASTM A307 Grade A fastener.)
FACTORED DESIGN LOAD
Nu = k
EFFECTIVE EMBEDMENT DEPTH hef = in
FASTENER DIAMETER
d = in
FASTENER HEAD TYPE
  ( 1=Square, 2=Heavy Square, 3=Hex, 4=Heavy Hex, 5=Hardened Washers )
ANALYSIS
EFFECTIVE AREA OF FASTENER Ase = in2
BEARING AREA OF HEAD
Ab = in2
CHECK FASTENER TENSILE STRENGTH :
= k Nu
where : f =
CHECK CONCRETE BREAKOUT STRENGTH :
= k Nu
where : f =
       AN/Ano and y2 terms are 1.0 for single fasteners away form edges.
       y3 term is 1.0 for location where concrete cracking is likely to occur (i.e., bottom of the slab)
CHECK PULLOUT STRENGTH :
= k Nu
where : f =
       y4 term is 1.0 for location where concrete cracking is likely to occur.
EVALUATE SIDE-FACE BLOWOUT :
Since this fastener is located far from a free edge of concrete (c>0.4hef ) this type of failure mode is not applicable.
REQUIRED EDGE DISTANCES AND SPACINGS TO PRECLUDE SPLITTING FAILURE :
Since this fastener is located far from a free edge of concrete (c>0.4hef ) this type of failure mode is not applicable.

     Note:
            For seismic Design Category C, D, E or F, the design strength of anchors shall be taken as 0.75 fNn & 0.75fVn.
