Introduction-From almost the beginning of reinforced-concrete construction, anchorages for the ends of the bars have been used. The tie-rods and vertical hangers of bowstring arches, the reinforcing bars in the corners of rigid frames and bents, and the bars in beams of variable depth all furnish examples where the use of anchors is obviously necessary. It is in these cases that anchors are put to their most severe use, for it is here that they must develop the entire stress in the bars and do so without slip.
