1. GTSTRUDL User’s Group Annual Meeting - 2011 BASE PLATE ANALYSIS June 23, 2011Parimal Gandhi, PE Sr. Engineer

2. PURPOSE • Non-Linear Finite Element Analysis For Base Plate. • AND • Stiffness Analysis For Base Plate.

3. AGENDA • INTRODUCTION AND THEORY • BASE PLATE MODELING • EDIT THE BASE PLATE INPUT FILE • BASE PLATE STRESSES & BOLTS LOADS • FLEXIBLE & RIGID BASE PLATE RESULTS • CONCLUSION

4. Introduction & Theory • The finite element method is used to analyze the base plate considering the beam on elastic foundation. • The concrete and bolts are represented by non linear spring elements attached to the nodal points on the steel base plate and to the ground. • The steel base plate is modeled with SBHQ6 • and SBHT6 plate bending element. • Attachments and Stiffeners are modeled as RIGID SOLIDS in the plane of the base plate.
