Author(s): Werner Fuchs

Publication: Web Session

Volume: Fuchs.pdf


Appears on pages(s):

Keywords: adhesive anchor, reliability, bond strength, hole preparation

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.
