RE: Safety factor=4 for anchors

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
For new building ACI 318-05? appendix D and ACI 355 determines the capacity of a post installed fasteners.  This is essentially what the ICC acceptance criteria for expansion anchors requires.

Talk to your expansion bolt manufacturer.  Hilti and Simpson both know what they are doing.
