Updated ASCE Publication Provides Guidance on Anchorage Design for Industrial Facilities

Reston, Va. – Anchorage design involves connecting a structural or non-structural component to a concrete or steel structure. Understanding the state-of-the-practice for the design of cast-in-place anchors, welded anchors, and post-installed anchors is critical when used for petrochemical and other industrial facilities. The latest American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) publication, Anchorage Design for Petrochemical and Other Industrial Facilities, Second Edition, serves as a source for uniformity in design, fabrication, and installation. This second edition evaluates the impacts of published reference data, research development, and code changes that have occurred since creation of the 2012 technical report.

Key topics covered in the book include:

  • Petrochemical and other industrial facilities anchorage design methods for tension and shear transfer into concrete with reinforcement and other embedments;
  • Summary of anchorage materials and properties;
  • Current practices for fabrication and installation of anchorage;
  • Recommendations for post-installed anchors;
  • Comprehensive recommendations for cast-in-place anchor design, which are appropriate for use in petrochemical and other industrial facilities; and
  • Recommended constructability and repair practices.

This valuable resource will assist engineers who design anchorage for equipment and structures, as well as operating company personnel responsible for establishing internal design, fabrication, and construction practices.
