Paper summarizes experimental investigations of the static and dynamic long-term behavior of anchors. Creep behavior and loss of anchor pretension are examined and consequences on the fatigue behavior of anchors subjected to dynamic excitations are shown. Environmental influences, such as moisture or temperature, on the long-term behavior of anchors are also discussed.
