December 17, 2020 - 3:00 pm Eastern Day Time

Structural and non-structural elements are often connected to concrete structures by means of concrete anchors. Anchors are either cast-in the concrete during construction, or post-installed when the concrete has cured. There are various concrete anchor types with different behavioral characteristics. The designer must select the type, size and embedment most suitable for the given situation. Due to the large diversity in product types and makes, anchors are not standardized and products need to be qualified for their intended use. For this, suitability and serviceability tests on individual anchors are carried out in independent test laboratories. Evaluation of the test results ultimately result in the issuing of technical approvals which also provide the necessary data to carry out safe anchor design. In this webinar, the process for testing and qualification of post installed anchors, relevant building code and acceptance criteria will be discussed along with the design procedure, failure modes, and the factors affecting the failure mode.

NOTICE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking extra steps to ensure that all participants can view CFSEI webinars while practicing social distancing. If you usually view CFSEI webinars in a group format, such as a conference room, please provide us with the names and email addresses of all attendees from your company on the registration form. We will provide a unique link for each individual and notify them individually so they can view the webinars in an isolated setting. We will continue to register groups in this way for the foreseeable future. Thank you for taking this extra step in the registration process.
