Description:

          This application calculates the plan dimensions and thickness for optimum (least weight) base plates for axially loaded wide flange columns. The plan dimensions and thickness of the plates are optimized for the final rounded plate dimensions and thicknesses.The required input includes column loads, ratio of the concentric concrete support area to the plate area, the yield strength of the base plate steel, rounding factors for plan dimensions and thickness, and the column widths and depths.
