Concrete Anchors

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Peter Higgins,

Thanks for your post. One large anchor company testing representative is
trying to determine if the company should embark on a significant new
testing program based upon the findings of ACI 355.Incorporation of ACI 355
findings into future codes seems probable to them. They are keenly
interested in the exact type of input you gave from your experience. If
there are real performance problems in the field with the post-installed
anchors, everyone should be made aware of them. Structural engineering
problems often appear in the field first and then are brought back to the
research and testing programs for further study.

Continued discussion of this topic by other server participants would be
useful.
