C-FIX

The anchor design program for steel and bonded anchor in concrete

To provide proof in accordance with European Technical Assessment [ETA] and Engineering solution (ENSO) for anchors and applications that are exposed to static and quasi-static loads. Through the engineer-like consideration (ENSO), it is possible to cover nearly every requirements and designs that are requested all over the world.

Through this service, you have the advantage to generate always the right design in the respective country. Over 30 local subsidiaries enable fischer to offer you 100% support all over the world. The tried and tested multiple design for all products is available for an easier choice of anchors.

A FE?- based design of the required anchor plate thickness is now also possible with the user-defined anchor plate materials and  -stabilities.  Through the engineer-like consideration (ENSO), a variety of different anchor plate geometries and anchor arrangements can now be constructed and measured.

To the downloads and system requirements

Now also for designs in masonry

The new version of C-FIX with optimised start times allows the design of fixings in masonry after the specifications of the ETAG. Thereby, a variable anchor plate form is possible, whereby the amount of anchors has to be limited to 1, 2 or 4 after the specifications of the ETAG  029. For masonry of small-format bricks, an additional option for a design in associations is available. Therefore it is possible to plan and successfully prove even bigger anchorage depths up to 200 mm.

A similar operator interface as at the design in concrete is also used for the design of fixings in masonry. This simplifies the fast entry and the operation. All entry options which are not permitted for the elected substrate are automatically deactivated. All possible combinations out of anchor rods and anchor sleeves are offered for selection, suitable to the respective brick. A wrong entry is therefore impossible. During the change of design between concrete and masonry, all relevant data are being adopted. This simplifies the entry and avoids mistakes.

The most relevant details can be entered directly inside the graphic, partially, complementary details in the menu are needed.
Independent from where you are making the changes, an automatically comparison with all involved input options is ensured. Not permitted constellations are showed with a meaningful message, in addition, a real time calculation delivers you to every change the appropriate result. Too large or too small details about axial- and edge spaces were showed in the status line and can be corrected immediately. The in the ETAG requested consideration of the butt joint is user-friendly designed by clearly structured menu queries of the joint design and -thickness.

The design result can be saved as a meaningful and verifiable document with all relevant data of the design and be printed to the product.
