Take the guesswork out of baseplate design

Baseplate design can be a time-consuming process, involving modelling complex connection configurations and performing several hand calculations. Our anchor design software, PROFIS Engineering Suite offers built-in templates for simple and complex configurations.

When fastening anchors to baseplates it’s important to carefully consider:

  • Applied forces – including seismic and fatigue
  • Rigidity of the baseplates
  • Legal regulations
  • Base material – whether it’s masonry, cracked concrete or non-cracked concrete
  • Distance to edges and spacing
  • Welds and Stiffeners 

For baseplate designs, PROFIS Engineering Suite offers an advanced baseplate module which simplifies the manual process and workflow. Taking all the important aspects into consideration, you can design the entire steel to concrete connection more quickly and safely, including baseplate, anchors, welds, stiffeners and the concrete stresses. And once the project is completed, you can simply generate a customized code-compliant report.
