The Boltable Embed Plate

Dear Mr. VeRost: Thank you for the info on Bolted Embedded Plate below. I am interested in knowing more about the connection and have the following questions:

1. Is there a web site that has more info on this connection and its applications?

2. Has this connection been reviewed/discussed by the Research Council on Structural Connections (RCSC)( which develops provisions for and maintains the specifications for bolted and riveted connections?

3. Are there test results on behavior of this connection under monotonic (gravity) and cyclic (wind and earthquake)Effects?

4. Is this a patented system or is it in public domain?

5. In what type of structures this connection has been used? Industrial, residential, high rises, ...?

I appreciate it very much if you can provide more information on this connection and its advantages and disadvantages.

Thank you again for bringing to these pages the existence of such connections.
