Declaration on development of the analytical method for evaluating the baseplate stiffness The analytical method comparing the calculated highest anchor tension force of rigid and elastic baseplates for evaluating the required baseplate stiffness in anchor design was first developed by me in 2014. This method has been in use in the manufacturer- independent anchor design software “Anchor Profi” since March 2016 [1] and has been published in 3 papers [2, 3, 4] since 2017. I welcome the increasing use of this evaluation method by anchor manufacturers in their anchor design software and by researchers in their baseplate stiffness assessment papers. However, it is unfortunate that some anchor manufacturers and researchers have not cited a source in their publications when using this method. I hereby declare that the above-mentioned analytical method was first developed and published by me through in-house research for practical baseplate design.
