PROFIS Anchor Design Guide – page 231
Adhesive anchors were incorporated into ACI under the premise that the existing design models would be minimally affected. The success, or failures, of adhesive anchors are highly dependent on the installer and the procedures employed to install the anchor.
This was a conscientious decision by the Code Committee at the beginning of the reorganization work, because: This includes the design provisions for bond strength and concrete breakout. In ArticlesInSights Comments 0. In Figure 1, the undercutting of the threads in the concrete is illustrated. This requirement 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.
In reality, screw anchors have been around since the early s. Screw Anchors There are a wide variety of post-installed concrete anchors, and the newest post-installed anchor is the screw anchor.
Undercutting of screw threads in concrete from Olsen, et. To provide the mechanical interlock to the concrete, the screw anchor cuts a thread into the concrete during the installation process.
First Name Last Name. Aug, By Neal S. This makes the use of screw anchors a single-use item; removing and reusing the ac13 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.
Certification Based partially on the Boston Big Dig tunnel accident, the adhesive anchor installer must be certified to install anchors wc193 certain orientations and under certain load conditions. In the next Code cycle, screw anchors will be studied for inclusion. Adhesive anchor design provisions for tension were the only provisions supplemented, necessitating new checks for concrete bond stress.

AC also outlines the qualification tests required for screw anchors. Design Provisions Adhesive anchors were incorporated into ACI under the premise that the existing design models would be minimally affected. So, what is the state of the anchoring industry and where do the codes go from here? They are intended to carry direct tension, direct shear, or combinations kcc-es tension and shear loadings.
AC – ICC Evaluation Service, LLC (ICC-ES)
Adhesive anchors loaded in shear behave similar to other post-installed and cast-in-place anchors, and, hence, existing design models and procedures could be used. Reference should be made to a paper by Icv-es for additional information. 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.
The ACI Code provisions are not mandatory unless adopted by the local building code for the given jurisdiction. Appendix D will now formally be placed in the body of the Code as Chapter There are a wide variety of post-installed concrete anchors, and the newest post-installed anchor is the screw anchor.
Neal may be reached at nsanderson sgh. The next code cycle will contemplate further additions and layout reorganization.
As of 15 Januarythe following will icc-ws required: 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. Qualification For post-installed mechanical anchors, anchors must be qualified to the criterion in the ACI 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.
Pullout failures also occur for screw anchors only when they are deeply embedded.
Your message Submit Comment. In addition to installer certification, inspection is an important requirement required in ACI Research testing of screw anchors has shown that failure can occur in tension via three modes: Deep embedments are often difficult to achieve because the friction of cutting a thread can exceed the torsional capacity of the screw shank and fail the steel in torsion.
But unlike other chapters in the re-organized Code, Chapter 17 essentially remained an untouched clone of Appendix D.

For post-installed mechanical anchors, anchors must be qualified to the criterion in the ACI Ixc-es 12 years, we have codified anchorage design procedures and developed anchor qualification standards that have greatly raised the reliability bar for anchors used in practical design conditions.
