"Anchor Bolt(318-08).xls" is a MS-Excel spreadsheet workbook for the analysis of anchor bolt anchorage per ACI 318-08, Appendix D. The spreadsheet is designed to find the embedment strength of a determined anchor bolt or bolts within certain concrete parameters. Tables and figures have been given adjacent to the required data cells in an attempt to self contain the calculations within the worksheet. The spreadsheet is protected but with no password required on worksheets "Tension Reinf." and "Shear Reinf." "Doc" and "Anchorage" worksheets are protected with password. Version 1.5 has been updated to allow users to insert or modify objects in spreadsheet. Also, an error which incorrectly decreased anchor strength for PIAs where grout is used was corrected (Section D.6.1) "Anchorage" worksheet has been revised to 1.5. Thank you for your comments to help improve the format and miscellaneous minor errors.
