Title: Adhesive Anchors: Requirements for their Reliable use in Concrete
Author(s): Werner Fuchs
Publication: Web Session
Appears on pages(s):
Keywords: adhesive anchor, reliability, bond strength, hole preparation
Abstract:As the ACI 318 Code Committee adopts design procedures for adhesive anchors into the code, and the failures of adhesive anchors in the Boston Central Artery Tunnel ceilings are still fresh in our minds, it is appropriate to review the subject of adhesive anchors. These presentations cover the full breadth of technical considerations for design professionals and include design, installation, qualification, and inspection requirements. Also discussed are the characteristics of sustained load behavior and other specific anchor considerations.
