Concrete edge failure

Concrete edge failure

Frequently asked question: In a narrow and thin component the resistance for concrete edge failure does not increase with increasing edge distance c1. What is the reason for this illogical baviour? Answer: With edge distances c2,1 and c2,2 and a component thickness h...

Finite Element (FEM)

FEM calculation: Under the provision that a valid design result is present, a profile was selected and at least one anchor is tension loaded, you can use this function to determine the required base plate thickness according to the Finite Element Method (FEM)....
