Anchor rod welded on plate CAN/CSA

Anchor rod welded on plate CAN/CSA

Hey Guys,

I have the case where the anchor rod needs to be welded on the column cap plate, and it's to be welded using the full tensile strength of the rod. Plate material is 300W with 1" thick and Anchor rod material is A307 with 1"Ø, What will be the fillet weld size? I know fillet weld size for rebars but not for anchor rods.

Thanks in advance!!

The case I have is different than the thread, Can I get anything else

Thanks in advance!!

RE: Anchor rod welded on plate CAN/CSA

If you need to develop the full strength of the rod, then your fillet size will be the weld circumference (all around the rod) x the weld throat (0.71 x leg height) x the allowable weld strength. You might need a partial penetration butt weld in addition to the fillet to develop the full strength of the rod. Run the numbers.
