Abstract:

A literature review of studies on the behavior of post-installed concrete anchors is presented. The survey covers several types of anchors that are subjected to tension loads, shear loads, and to combined shear and tension loads. Brief summaries of the studies or investigations and their findings are presented. More detailed information may be found in the cited references. There are quite a number of studies on the behavior of these anchors subjected to shear or tension loads, but only a few studies on the behavior of anchors subjected to combined shear and tension loads, especially adhesive anchors. An experimental program to study the behavior of anchors subjected to combined shear and tension loads needs to be conducted to add to the existing database.
