Check of anchor tension as a bolt tension option (AS)

As per the Australian Standard (AS), anchor bolts are traditionally checked with the same formula as bolts. This differs from the low resistance factor in the new code for anchor bolts (especially post-installed).

In projects under the AS standard, for the anchor tensile resistance check, you can choose to follow the following (in the Code Setup): 

    • AS 5216:2018 – 6.2.2 (default)
    • AS 4100:2020 –

If the AS 4100:2020 – (as it is used for bolts) is selected, the anchor tensile resistance is replaced by the bolt check as follows:

Anchor tensile resistance (AS 4100:2020 –
