steel columns anchor bolts design software for loads combination

Hi everybody,
I am looking to find a software to design anchor bolts for steel columns attached to concrete pedestals for various load combinations and bolts layout, same as used on etabs 8.11 for example.
Best if it can be related to etabs as safe.

RE: steel columns anchor bolts design software for loads combination

Since anchor nolt  and baseplate design is relatively straightforward, I assume you want the software as a time-saver for repetitive calculations.  If you have a programmable calculator (~US$90), you could prove the logic and punch in a short program in about an hour.  Then it is available for other baseplates, and you retain control of the calculation.

'Hilti' produce and excellent piece of design software which may help you with specific bolt types.  I have used the UK version, I assume tyhe US version I have found works in a similar way, but I haven't tried it.  Its free at:
