Anchorage to Concrete: Anchor Design Using ACI 318-14 Chapter 17.  

Donald Meinheit leads this full-day seminar on the behavior and design of cast-in-place and post-installed concrete anchors.

The following topics will be Included in the discussion:

  • Structural anchor types
  • Historical background on anchor design
  • Qualification requirements for anchors
  • Behavior of cast-in and post-installed anchors loaded in direct tension
    • Models to predict single anchor capacity
      • Steel failure
      • Concrete breakout failure
      • Concrete side-face blowout
      • Anchor pullout / pull-through
  • Behavior of cast-in and post-installed anchors loaded in direct shear
    • Models to predict single anchor capacity
      • Steel failure
      • Concrete breakout failure
      • Concrete pryout
  • Design provisions for tension loaded anchors
    • Group and spacing design model
    • Effects of edges
    • Effects of cracking
    • Effects of eccentricity of load
    • Splitting of concrete provisions
    • Effects of concrete type
    • Design limits
  • Design provisions for shear loaded anchors
    • Group and spacing design model
    • Effects of edges
      • Edges perpendicular to applied shear force
      • Edges parallel to applied shear force
    • Effects of cracking
    • Effects of eccentricity of load
    • Effects of concrete type
  • Combined tension and shear loadings
  • Complex loading conditions
  • Adhesive Anchor Installer Certification
  • Design examples

Attendees will earn 7.5 hours of continuing education credit.  CE certificates will be emailed to all participants following the event. 

Course handouts will also be emailed to participants in PDF format.
