## Design of base plate by Roark's Formula

(OP)

Hi everyone,

I am design a steel base plate, and I usually use the Roark's Formula (TABLE 11.4 Formulas for flat plates with straight boundaries and constant thickness). But in this tables, there is cases for Poisson v=0,3 (steel) and v=0,2 (concrete).

How can I do to use the tables with v=0,2 for material steel? Is there any change in the formulas with v=0,2 to use with v=0,3?

Why not AISC Steel Design Manual to design Chhapete 14 to determine required thickness of steel baseplate. Design of Welded Structures by Blodgett has some good examples too

These equations is applicable to Roark's Formula too?
