Base Plate Wizard

Base Plate Wizard

(OP)
Anybody out there using GTSTRUDL Base Plate Wizard? What modelling assumptions are you making in terms of boundary conditions of the anchors, flexibility of the plate, etc.?

RE: Base Plate Wizard

I have the BP wizard but have not used it much except to play with it a little. FWIR, you can have the plate elements bearing on concrete or they can be supported on anchor bolts with leveling nuts.  I would give Rob Abernathy a call at the CASE center to get mode details and maybe a few example problems.  

I think the anchors are fixed and the plate elements can be pinned at the anchor so the plate can rotate.
