How to get the forces in the anchors

The internal forces in the joint induce the compression/tension under the anchoring plate. We have to perform the analysis to receive adequate loads, which will be used as the loads to the IDEA StatiCa Detail model. The tensile forces in the anchors can be acquired either some simplifications using the assumption of a rigid body plate and linear redistribution of the forces in the anchors or using application IDEA StatiCa Connection, which considers real stiffness of the anchoring plate with the effect of prying.
