Quick and Powerful Concrete Anchor Base Plates Design

Baseplates are literally the foundation of many structures and are a crucial aspect of design. Having quick and easy answers is important for structural engineers to do their jobs effectively. Adding to SkyCiv's already list of free tools, is the new Base Plate Calculator for AISC 360, AS4100 and EN2 design standards. This easy to use calculator will display the plate checks required for column base plate anchor bolt design.

This AS4100 / AISC 360 / EN2 base plate design calculator has been pulled from our full Base Plate Design Software - that allows you to do much more.

Base Plate and Anchor Rod Design

Anchoring base plate to concrete is not always straight forward, and sometimes you just need a quick answer. SkyCiv software helps with the design of base plate with anchor bolts with circular and rectangular endings. Pick from a range of materials and anchor layouts, or add your own custom position for powerful and accurate anchor rod design. AISC, AS and Eurocode base plate anchor bolt design examples can also be taken from our full reporting capabilities that show full step by step calculations.

Base Plate Stiffener Design (coming soon)

SkyCiv Base Plate also allows you to add and check stiffeners on your base plate designs. Easily add stiffeners into the software, and perform required checks to ensure your designs are to code.

Detailed Calculation Reports

SkyCiv generates detailed calculation reports to help engineers understand the step by step requirements and checks performed by the software. These can make for great example design checks, as the engineer can follow exactly how to calculate these sorts of designs in the future.

American, Australian and European Standards!

The above calculator and design software currently support American design standards (AISC / ACI), Australian Standards (AS 4100 and AS 3600) as well as Eurocode (EN 2 and EN 3) to perform the required design checks. Want to see more codes? Please let us know! We are very open and really appreciate feedback and suggestions to improve.
