Simpson Strong-Tie Anchor Designer is the latest anchorage design tool for structural engineers to satisfy the strength design provisions of ACI 318-19/-14 Chapter 17 / ACI 318-11 Appendix D, CAN/ CSA A23.3 Annex D, ETAG 001 Annex C or EOTA TR029 design methodologies. Anchor Designer will quickly and accurately analyse an existing design or suggest anchorage solutions based upon user-defined design elements in cracked and uncracked concrete conditions.
The real-time design is visually represented in a fully-interactive 3D graphic user interface, supports imperial and metric-sized Simpson Strong-Tie mechanical and adhesive anchors, and offers cast-in-place solutions. Anchor Designer can calculate single anchor solutions or up to 16 anchors in a single plate. Previous designs from existing Simpson Strong-Tie anchor design software may be uploaded into Anchor Designer, and the detailed output is provided in convenient PDF format.
There are four product lines available when selected by region 'Australia / New Zealand'.
- VT-HP chemical anchor
