At Hilti our engineering team can help you design your anchor systems – just contact your local Hilti office for more details.
Or, you can use our Hilti PROFIS Anchor design software. This includes code compliant Hilti products in 2D and 3D with relevant documentation and specifications.
Our PROFIS Anchor software performs seismic calculations according to EOTA TR 045. This gives three solutions for anchoring base plates in seismic areas:
The anchorage is designed for the force corresponding to the yield of a ductile component, or if lower, the maximum force that can be transferred by the fixture or the attached element.
The fastening is designed for the maximum load assuming an elastic behavior of the fastening and of the structure.
Design with requirements for anchor ductility
This design for ductile steel failure requires an anchor classified as ductile. This approach is also applicable only for the tension component and some provisions need to be observed in order to ensure that the cause of failure is steel failure.
We’ve also added our own Hilti research results into PROFIS Anchor design software, so that you can find solutions, which go beyond EOTA TR 045.
