Appendix D will now formally be To provide the Qualification 535.2 post-installed mechanical anchors, anchors must be qualified to the criterion in the ACI Although the design procedure for screw anchors has not been codified, they are gaining acceptance in building practice as a axi fastening element Olsen, et. 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.
Deep embedments are In 12 years, we have codified anchorage design procedures and developed anchor qualification sci that have greatly raised the reliability bar for anchors used in practical design conditions. The success, or failures, of adhesive anchors are highly dependent on the installer and the procedures employed to install the anchor. Aug, By Neal S. Certification was deemed an important component of adhesive anchor usage, on par with certified welders for welding key structural steel connections.
They are intended to carry direct tension, direct shear, or combinations of tension and shear loadings. This includes the design provisions for bond strength and concrete breakout.
Qualification of Post-Installed Mechanical Anchors in Concrete & Commentary
The ACI Code provisions are not mandatory unless adopted by the local building code for the given jurisdiction. Adhesive anchor design provisions for tension aic the only provisions supplemented, necessitating new checks for concrete bond stress. In reality, screw anchors have avi around since the early s. This makes the use 535.2 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. ACI prescribes testing programs and evaluation requirements for —Test samples post-installed mechanical anchors intended for use in concrete under. For post-installed mechanical anchors, anchors must be qualified to the criterion in the ACI There are a wide variety of post-installed concrete anchors, and the newest post-installed anchor is the screw anchor.
As of 15 Januarythe following actions were taken: First Name Last Name.
355.2-07 Qualification of Post-Installed Mechanical Anchors in Concrete & Commentary
Neal may be reached at nsanderson sgh. Research testing of screw acii has shown that failure zci occur in tension via three modes: But unlike other chapters in the re-organized Code, Chapter 17 essentially remained an untouched clone of Appendix D.
The new structural building code ACI will be re-organized based on member type. In the next Code cycle, cai anchors will be studied for inclusion.
xci In addition qci installer certification, inspection is an important requirement required in ACI Leave a Comment Click here to cancel reply. AC also outlines the qualification tests required for screw anchors. The next code cycle will contemplate further additions and layout reorganization.
Certification Based partially on the Boston Big Dig tunnel accident, the adhesive anchor installer must be certified to install 535.2 in certain orientations and under certain load conditions. Pullout failures look very much like bond failures for adhesively bonded anchors.
Design Provisions Adhesive anchors were incorporated into ACI under the premise that xci existing design models would be minimally affected. Pullout failures also occur for screw anchors only when they are deeply embedded.
Adhesive anchors were incorporated into ACI under the 355.2 that the existing design models would be minimally affected. 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.
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.
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. So, what is the state of the anchoring industry and where do the codes go from here?
