Base Plate are construction material mainly used to distribute column loads to the over a large enough area or whole surface.
The base plate completes the load path into the foundation by serving as a contact between the superstructure and the ground. Base plates adapt to the shape of the foundation, which is commonly a square or a rectangle, and aid in the uniform distribution of superstructure loads to the foundation.
Typically, base plates are delivered as a single unit and joined to the column during structural steel fabrication. In other cases, leveling screws affixed to the plate’s sides are used to secure the base plate before grouting.
In order to reduce vibration, baseplates and foundations must be constructed to give the best possible dynamic support and to keep misalignment between the pump, the driver, and other drive-train components (such gearboxes or variable-speed devices) within permitted tolerances. The conventional approach is to make the baseplate extremely robust and bolt and grout it rigidly to the foundation. An alternative to this design strategy is the use of exceptionally hard concrete pedestals for the centerline mounted pump and sole plates underneath the pump and driver that are permanently bonded to the foundation.
It is mostly used as a platform, pedestal covering or even safety cover for holes and manholes.
