Table Run IDs

Strong-Rod Systems

Specify Run ID Callouts

Step 1

Use the Run Identification load tables below to determine the run type based on (a) cumulative tension and (b) incremental bearing. Recommended Run ID will be determined by selecting the highest-capacity run type from any level.

Using the website tables referenced above, compare the run cumulative tension and incremental bearing forces to the forces in the table for each level. Specify the Run ID that corresponds to the highest-capacity run type for any of the levels. See Run ID naming legend below. Contact Simpson Strong-Tie for conditions not covered by the Run ID tables.

Step 2

Determine the deformation limits required to meet building drift limits.
Specify total deformation ΔT criteria to be used when designing the rod-system run.

Step 3

  1. Determine the required anchor size, material and embedment per applicable codes.
  2. For anchorage to foundation, visit ATS Shallow Podium Anchor design tables to select appropriate anchor model.

Step 4

Use the asymmetrical and symmetrical compression member selection tables to select compression members.

Step 5

Specify the solution on the plan. The following is an example of the minimum information required.

  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.
