ATS: Specifying Run ID Callouts

As an option, Designers are provided with the tools and tables to specify pre-designed Run IDs for their own Anchor Tiedown System for Shearwall Overturning Restraint . These Run IDs can be specified on the Designer’s construction documents with associated details.

The following design example illustrates the procedure for using the Run ID tables. The Designer will need to determine the overturning loads required at each floor. Use the Run ID load tables provided to pick the appropriate Strong-Rod® ATS based on the number of floors and the capacity. The continuous rod tiedown system provides the tension restraint for the shearwall for which the Designer will need to specify the compression posts, sheathing thickness and grade, nailing schedule, horizontal drift, and all other requirements in accordance with the applicable building code.

  1. Cumulative Tension is the ASD design tension force in the rod at each level. It is the cumulative tension force and increases from the top level to the bottom level as each level introduces additional tension into the rod system run.
  2. Incremental Bearing is the ASD design bearing force resisted by the bearing plate restraint at each level. It is the additional uplift (tension) force that is introduced into the rod system run.
