Abstract:
Until recently, the behavior of adhesive anchors installed in cold concrete components was inadequately investigated. The article presents background information on the load-bearing behavior of adhesive anchors installed at low temperatures, describes corresponding tests, and reports test results. These results indicate that the behavior of low-temperature installation of adhesive anchor products is sufficiently considered in the product prequalification provisions now specified in the United States.
