Base Plate Design (Biaxial Bending) - AISC 360-16 LRFD
The spreadsheet program written in MS-Excel for the purpose of analysis of steel column base plates. Column base plates may be subjected to axial loads (compression or tension) with or without major and/or minor-axis column bending plus major and/or minor-axis shear. Base plate bearing pressure is checked as well as bolt tension, if applicable. Finally, the required base plate thickness and weld size is calculated. The tool iterate the location and angel of the neutral axis, so the Macro and the SOLVER.xlam should be enabled. The tool is inspired by the work of Alex Tomanovich, his work is highly appreciated.
