Abstract:
ACI CODE-355.2 prescribes testing programs and evaluation requirements for post-installed mechanical anchors intended for use in structural applications addressed by ACI 318 and subjected to static or seismic loads in tension, shear, or combined tension and shear. Criteria are prescribed for determining whether anchors are acceptable for use in uncracked concrete only, or in cracked as well as uncracked concrete. Performance categories for anchors are established, as are the criteria for assigning anchors to each category. The anchor performance categories are used by ACI 318 to assign capacity reduction factors and other design parameters. Keywords: anchors; cracked concrete; expansion anchors; fasteners; mechanical anchors; post-installed anchors; screw anchors; undercut anchors.
