Anchor Design Software

DesignFiX – The Benchmark for Anchor Design

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.

Shear loads perpendicular to slotted holes

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 the influence of slotted holes on the distribution of shear loads:
