Maximising the capacity of connections to concrete - Advances in anchoring technology
Fastenings to concrete are often poorly understood by designers with many relying on ‘data tables’ published by anchor suppliers. However, comprehensive design guidelines for post-installed and cast-in anchors are now available through Standards Australia TS 101:2015 and shortly, in EN 1992-4. Design engineers are constantly trying to push the boundaries of anchor performance by positioning anchors close to a free edge, providing challenges for how to achieve the required capacity. The Concrete Capacity method embodied in design guidelines includes conservative assumptions for anchors in groups with or without supplementary reinforcement loaded towards a concrete edge, hampering efficient anchor design and preventing addition capacity from being exploited.
