The following two phases of the design of expansion anchored plates are discussed in this paper. a) Initial Design. b) Reassessment of as-built conditions. Initial design refers to the design phase before installation of plates. Both the simplified design methods viz. design by charts and design by modified rigid plate analysis, are applicable to the initial design. However, reassessment of as-built conditions can be performed using only the modified rigid plate analysis when the reassessment must consider the as-built locations of anchors and attachments which may be different from those used in developing the simplified design charts.
