PCI stud tension breakout
This spreadsheet is based on the procedure presented in the 7th edition of PCI Design Handbook (Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute) section 184.108.40.206. The procedure is based on the CCD method presented in ACI 318-05 for predicting tension capacity of anchors in concrete and has been validated by a PCI sponsored extensive research project conducted by Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates Inc. The equations are simplified from appendix D but are only applicable to headed studs welded to steel plates and embedded in concrete.
