Anchor Design Software
DesignFiX – The Benchmark for Anchor Design – Become a Real Anchor Profi:
DesignFiX is an all-purpose anchor design program for manufacturers of fasteners for free distribution to their clients such as engineers, planners or craftsmen. By using the software, the clients can design mechanical and chemical heavy duty anchors under static loads and under the influence of earthquake. It takes into account internationally recognized regulations such as the European directive ETAG 001, the American standards ACI 318-05, ACI 318-08 and ACI 318-11 or the Canadian standard CSA A23.3-04. Therefore, it can be used in many countries worldwide.
When groups of mechanical or chemical anchors close to a component edge fail due to ‘Concrete cone failure’ then steps may occur in the characteristic resistance as soon as the axial spacing perpendicular to the edge exceeds the characteristic value…read more

The European design guidelines for anchors (ETAG 001, Annex C for mechanical and ETAG 001, Technical Report TR 029 for chemical anchors) describe in section 126.96.36.199 the influence of slotted holes on the distribution of shear loads:
“Slotted holes in the direction of the shear load prevent anchors to take up shear loads. This can be favourable in case of fastenings close to an edge.”

The design of anchors in accordance with ETAG 001, Annex C or TR 029 may in certain cases lead to curious and illogical results that contradict the expectations of the users.read more
In a concrete component with at least three edges in a distance less than 1.5 times the embedment depth the resistance for conical concrete break-out, splitting and pry-out failure does not increase … What is the reason for this illogical behaviour?read more
