Shear Connector Design Program

Design Program for Ancon DSD/DSDQ Shear Connectors

Free software is available from Ancon that simplifies the design of movement joints in reinforced concrete.

For a given application, Ancon’s design program will calculate the size and quantity of shear load connectors required, the edge distance and spacings at which they should be installed, and details of the local reinforcement. This software is available in six languages.

Ancon DSD Shear Connectors are double dowel units and are more effective at both transferring load and allowing movement to take place than debonded single dowels. Visit the Shear Load Connector section for more information on the Ancon DSD.
