I have an application where I need to use a shear key on a base-plate to transfer the shear from a steel column to a mat foundation. Uplift = 91 kips, shear = 33.6 kips. I have used the AISC Design guide in the past but I was told to check out the ACI anchorage section as they have a design procedure for a shear key. I was looking at my ACI-02 and I guess I am blind because I can't seem to see it in there. Does anyone know where this procedure is, or maybe if its in the ACI-05 and not the 02? Thanks for your help.
