Anchor bolts in tension and shear

This article is also available in:
In the attached verification example, an anchoring is designed according to CSA S14-16 and CSA A23.3-14 and the resistances are compared to CBFEM results.

The column base is loaded by tension and shear. 

The difference in anchor utilization is 3% due to the occurrence of prying forces in CBFEM.
