At Hilti, our engineering team can help you design anchor systems for all types of load conditions including seismic. Just contact your local office for more details or you can use Hilti PROFIS Engineering software. This includes code compliant Hilti products with relevant documentation and specifications.
Hilti PROFIS Engineering software performs seismic calculations according to ACI 318 and SNI 2847:2019 This gives three solutions for anchoring base plates in seismic areas:
Capacity design - 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.
Elastic design - The fastening is designed for the maximum load assuming an elastic behaviour 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 to ensure that the cause of failure is steel failure.
We’ve also added our own Hilti research results into PROFIS Engineering software, so that you can find solutions, which go beyond ACI 318 and SNI 2847:2019.
