The preoccupation with an improvement of constructions in civil engineering leads to the adoption of the more powerful systems according to resistance, safety, the technology of implementation and also to the cost. The calculation of the steel-concrete elements was based beforehand on the experimental established formulae. This article proposes theoretical bases for the calculation of the interior forces, the normal and tangential constraints in the element as well as the acceptable load estimating in the steel-concrete plates. These formulae are justified by experimental data obtained. The divergence between these experimental values and the theoretical results obtained does not exceed 13,9%.

Keywords: Anchors, Bearing capacity, Steel-concrete plate, Ultimate load, Ultimate moment.
