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.
