Steel Base Plate

A steel plate which is attached to the bottom of a column that usually sits on a foundation and is secured by anchor rods. The base plate is designed by the engineer to distribute the load of the column that it supports over the much weaker masonry or concrete. Thus the plate is designed to distribute the loading over a sufficient area so that the concrete or masonry is not crushed by a concentrated load. Design of such plates is covered in Part 14 of the Manual of Steel Construction and AISC Design Guide 1. When a plate is used to support a beam over masonry or concrete it is usually referred to as a Bearing Plate.
