During the ACI 318-89 and ACI 318-95 code seminars, engineers and architects asked repeatedly about when the ACI 318 Building Code would include design provisions for anchorage to concrete. For the last several years, ACI Committees 318 (Standard Building Code), 349 (Concrete Nuclear Sructures), and 355 (Anchorage to Concrete) have worked diligently on developing such provisions. As discussed in the Introduction of this publication, Committee 318 came very close to completing an Appendix D to ACI 318-99, with code provisions and commentary, for strength design of anchorage to concrete. ACI 318 Appendix D continues to be processed under the ACI consensus process. The code provisions and commentary of the proposed ACI 318 Appendix D for cast-in-Place anchors only are reproduced in Appendices A and B of this document, respectively. The contents of Appendices A and B are copyrighted material and reproduced with permission from the American Concrete Institute (ACI). These two appendices are not an official ACI document, but rather part of a document being processed as an ACI consensus standard. The document, as well as the final consensus standard, will be the copyright of ACI. With permission from ACI, the design provisions of Appendix A of this publication are incorporated, with limited amendments, into the first edition of the International Building Code (IBC 2000) as Section 1913.
The primary purpose for publishing this document is to assist the engineer and architect in the implementation of the design provisions for anchorage to concrete. Six design examples illustrate the application of the design provisions for single and group anchors; subject to tension, shear, or combined tension and shear; with or without eccentricity; and with or without edge effects.
