Steel Strong-Wall Shear Anchorage

Foundation shear reinforcement to resist shear forces from Strong-Wall® panels located at the edge of concrete is shown in the table below. The S/SSW12 and S/SSW15 used in wind applications do not require shear reinforcement when the panel design shear force is less than the anchorage allowable shear load shown in the table below.

  1. Shear anchorage designs conform to ACI 318-14 and assume minimum f'c = 2,500 psi concrete.
  2. Shear reinforcement is not required for panels installed on a cold-formed steel floor, interior foundation applications (panel installed away from edge of concrete) or braced-wall panel applications.
  3. Seismic indicates Seismic Design Category C through F. Detached 1 and 2 family dwellings in SDC C may use wind anchorage solutions. Seismic shear reinforcement designs conform to ACI 318-14 Section 17.2.3.5.3.
  4. Wind includes Seismic Design Category A&B.
  5. Where noted, minimum curb/stemwall width is 6" when standard-strength SSWAB is used.
  6. Use (1) #3 tie for S/SSW12 and S/SSW15 when the Steel Strong-Wall® panel design shear force exceeds the tabulated anchorage allowable shear load.
  7. The registered design professional may specify alternate shear anchorage.
