Design information for concrete anchors is summarized in this paper. Based on recent research, the tension and shear capacities published in the past for concrete anchors are generally unconservative, especially data for proprietary concrete anchors. This paper recommends new design parameters for seven categories of concrete anchors. The parameters, presented in tabular form, are related to tension zone cracking and seismic loading, as well as spacing and edge distance.
