STRUCTURE magazine | Post-Installed Anchors
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.
Deep embedments are often difficult to achieve because the friction of cutting a thread can exceed the torsional capacity ac1993 the screw shank and fail the steel in torsion. Adhesive anchors were incorporated icc-ees ACI under the premise that the existing design models would be minimally affected. In the next Code cycle, screw anchors will be studied for inclusion. This kcc-es is recognition by the ACI Code committee that adhesive anchor installation needed some oversight qualifications to achieve satisfactory installations, consistent with the written design requirements and anchor manufacturer installation instructions.
Appendix D will now formally be placed in the body of qc193 Code as Chapter In reality, screw anchors have been around since the early s. In addition to installer certification, inspection is av193 important requirement required in ACI The new structural building code ACI will be re-organized based on member type.
Qualification For post-installed mechanical anchors, anchors must be qualified to the criterion in the ACI Adhesive anchor design provisions for tension were the only provisions supplemented, necessitating new checks for concrete bond stress. Certification was deemed an important component of adhesive anchor usage, on par with certified welders for welding key structural steel connections. There are a wide variety of post-installed concrete anchors, and the newest post-installed anchor is the screw anchor.
The ACI Code provisions are not mandatory unless adopted by the local building code for the given jurisdiction. The next code cycle will contemplate further additions and layout reorganization. Adhesive anchors loaded in shear behave similar to other post-installed and cast-in-place anchors, icc-ea, hence, existing design models and procedures could be used.
This was a conscientious decision by the Code Committee at the beginning of the reorganization work, because: Your message Submit Comment. To provide the mechanical interlock to the acc193, the screw anchor cuts a thread into the concrete during the installation process. So, what is the state of the anchoring industry and where do the codes go from here?

This includes the design provisions for bond strength and concrete breakout. Design Provisions Adhesive anchors were incorporated into ACI under the premise that the existing design models would be minimally affected. Pullout failures look very much like bond failures for adhesively bonded anchors.
But unlike other chapters in the re-organized Code, Chapter 17 essentially remained an untouched clone of Appendix D. First Name Last Name.
Aug, By Neal S. 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.
For post-installed mechanical anchors, anchors must be qualified to the criterion in the ACI Pullout failures also occur for screw anchors only when they are deeply embedded. As of 15 Januarythe following will be required: In Figure 1, the undercutting of the threads in the concrete is illustrated.
PROFIS Anchor Design Guide
Research testing of screw anchors icc-ed shown that failure can occur in tension via three modes: The success, or failures, of adhesive anchors are highly dependent on the installer and the procedures employed to install the anchor. This makes av193 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.
Reference should be made to a paper by Hoermann-Gast for additional information. Neal may be reached at nsanderson sgh.
The Present State of the Industry 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.
They are intended to carry direct tension, direct shear, or combinations of tension and shear loadings. Leave a Comment Click here to cancel reply.
As of 15 Januarythe following actions were taken: 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. AC also outlines the qualification tests required for icv-es anchors. In ArticlesInSights Comments 0.
