how do we calculate the strength of epoxy, using it in the concrte 

-----/Original Message/-----

We don't.

The manufacturer of the anchor system conducts testing in accordance
with an applicable standard (e.g. ICC-ES AC58), and submits the test
results to an approving agency (e.g. ICC-ES, COLA).

WE use the application and design data published in the approval report,
typically including tables of allowable design values for load as well
as installation requirements, etc.

(Note that we can do all this, the connection can still fail, and we can
still get dinged by the lawsuit. So goes what passes for a "civil
justice system" in our great land).
