The proposed addition is an appendix defining minimum requirements for design of steel embedments used to transmit loads from attachments into the reinforced concrete structures governed by the code. Loads may be transmitted into the structure by means of tension, bearing, shear, friction, or any combination thereof. The design limits have been established using both analytical and test methods. The proposed addition to the commentary (pp. 336-347 of this JOURNAL) provides background information on the provisions incorporated in this appendix.
