Calculating Anchorage Capacities for Nonstructural Components Used on 2012 IBC Projects

This document has been drafted as an aid to engineers who are not members of VISCMA, but who may be involved in the attachment and restraint of non‐structural components. It will offer a guide through the code documents detailing the 2012 IBC requirement to increase the design loads by a factor of 2.5 (or reduce anchor capacities to 40% of their rating) before selecting concrete anchorage components.
