Studs V4.3.0

The program calculates tension and shear capacity of plates with headed anchor studs or hooked bolts. When a shear load and/or either a moment or perpendicular load are specified along with an effective depth and width of a bracket, the program calculates the interaction of shear and moment and provides a satisfactory/not-satisfactory assessment of the combined pullout and shear capacity. In place of the interaction calculation there is an option for all shear load to be borne by tail bars attached to the plate. The program will report the required area of steel for the tail bars.
