The behaviour of tie rod anchor plates is at present not well established, and the criteria suggested do not seem to have consistent theoretical basis.This paper suggests a theoretical approach to determine the load-carrying capacity of stiff anchor plates acting on a masonry wall. According to this approach the punching strength is the lower of two values. The first value follows from the hypothesis that collapse occurs because of the slippage of the units on the mortar bed, whereas the second comes from the alternative hypothesis that punching creates a solid consisting of a truncated cone in which the outer face is the surface of the anchor plate (units break whereas the mortar does not crumble). When doing so it is supposed that the anchor plate is so stiff that pressure it applies on the masonry wall is almost constant. The issue of setting an adequate stiffness is solved for the most common types of anchor plate.Some numerical examples show the capabilities of the suggested approach.
