Reference should be made to a paper by Hoermann-Gast for additional information. First Name Last Name. Adhesive anchor design provisions for tension were the only provisions supplemented, necessitating new checks for concrete bond stress.
This requirement is recognition by xci ACI Code committee that adhesive anchor installation needed some oversight acl to achieve satisfactory installations, consistent with the written aco requirements and anchor manufacturer installation instructions.
This was a conscientious decision by the Code Committee at the beginning of the reorganization work, because: For post-installed mechanical anchors, anchors must be qualified to the criterion in the ACI There are a wide variety of post-installed concrete anchors, and the newest post-installed anchor is the screw anchor.
The success, or failures, of adhesive anchors are highly dependent on the installer and the procedures employed to install the anchor. AC also outlines the qualification tests required for screw anchors.

Aug, By Neal S. This makes the use of screw anchors a single-use item; removing and reusing the screw anchor in the drilled hole is not advised because the cutting threads on the screw are worn and getting the screw threads into the original cut threads in the concrete is difficult. To provide the This includes the design provisions for bond strength and concrete breakout. The creation of the threads in the concrete gives the screw anchor some advantage in cracked concrete where a small-narrow crack intersecting the threads has only a minor reduction on tension capacity.
So, what is the state of xci anchoring industry and where do the codes go from here?
355.2-07 Qualification of Post-Installed Mechanical Anchors in Concrete & Commentary
Design Provisions Adhesive anchors were incorporated into ACI under the premise that the existing design models would be minimally affected. Your message Submit Comment. Adhesive anchors loaded in shear behave similar to other post-installed and cast-in-place anchors, and, hence, existing design models and procedures could be used. In addition qci installer certification, inspection is an xci requirement required in ACI Leave a Comment Click here to cancel reply.

Qualification of Post-Installed Mechanical Anchors in Concrete & Commentary
As of 15 Januarythe following actions were taken: Neal may be reached at nsanderson sgh. ACI prescribes testing programs and evaluation requirements for —Test samples post-installed mechanical anchors intended for use in concrete acci. Research testing of screw acii has shown that failure can occur in tension via three modes: Deep embedments are Formal concrete anchorage design provisions first appeared in ACI as Appendix D, with applications limited to cast-in-place anchors and post-installed mechanical expansion anchors.
The next code cycle will contemplate further additions and layout reorganization. In Figure 1, the undercutting 355.2 the threads in the concrete is illustrated. Qualification For post-installed mechanical anchors, anchors must be qualified to the criterion in the ACI Although the design procedure for screw anchors has not been codified, they are gaining acceptance in building practice as a reliable 355.2 element Olsen, et.
They are intended to carry direct tension, direct shear, or combinations of tension and shear loadings. Pullout failures look very much like bond failures for adhesively bonded anchors.
Pullout failures also occur for screw anchors only 3555.2 they are deeply embedded. Certification Based partially on the Boston Big Dig tunnel accident, the adhesive anchor installer must be certified to install anchors in certain orientations and under certain load conditions.
Based partially on the Boston Big Dig tunnel accident, the adhesive anchor installer must be certified to install anchors in certain orientations and under certain load conditions. Adhesive anchors were incorporated into ACI under the premise that the existing design models would be minimally affected. Appendix D will now formally be Screw Anchors There are a wide variety of post-installed concrete anchors, and the newest post-installed anchor is the screw anchor.
In reality, screw anchors have avi around since the early s. But unlike other chapters in the re-organized Code, Chapter 17 essentially remained an untouched clone of Appendix D. Certification was deemed an important adi of adhesive anchor usage, on par with certified welders for welding key structural steel connections. Undercutting of screw threads in concrete from Olsen, et. The ACI Code provisions are not mandatory unless adopted by the local building code for the given jurisdiction.
The new structural building code ACI will be re-organized based on member type. In the next Code cycle, screw anchors will be studied qci inclusion. In 12 years, we have codified anchorage design procedures and developed anchor qualification sci that have greatly raised the reliability bar for anchors used in practical design conditions.
