There are six general considerations for fasteners: (1) load level, weight held; (2) load condition-dead, variable, vibratory, shock; (3) base material; (4) atmospheric condition; (5) in-place cost and (6) simplicity of design.

Experiences based on storm damage during the past few years indicate that buildings can be erected without major increase in cost to withstand the ravages of storms, provided resistance to forces encountered during storms has been given careful consideration by the designer. . .Using a typical residental building as an example, design considerations and construction details are advanced which can help make a building storm-resistant in areas with either moderate or severe storm exposure.
Performance characteristics of powder driven fastners installed in hardened concrete ranging in age from 30 ywars to 30 days indicate that failure in both shear and tension is apparently the direct results of frequent misapplication.

The major types of connection for prescast-prestressed concrete are described briefly.
Victor F. Leabu
This paper deals primarily with the important requirement that must be considered in the design and the selection of materials used for anchors, inserts, and connection assemblies for precast concrete wall panels. . .A list of suggested standards and good practice of design for precast concrete wall panel connections and inserts is included.
