No, No, No.

Never seen it. Never heard of it.

>Please, would all interested parties respond to the questions listed
below.  If you have any additional comments, questions, or opinions that
would promote further discussion on this subject it would be greatly
appreciated.

1.  Are you aware of a situation/installation where a tension zone
crack, through a post-installed anchor location, has contributed to, or
resulted in an anchor failure?

2.  Are you aware of a situation/installation where a tension zone
crack, through a post-installed anchor location, has reduced an anchor's
capacity (tension or shear)?

3.  Do you have any historical, real world data that would indicate
post-installed fastenings contribute to, or are effected by tension zone
cracking?

Thank you,
