Figure shows the characteristic resistance of a group consisting of four injection anchors M16 in a narrow component for the failure mode combined pull-out
The design of anchors in accordance with ETAG 001, Annex C or TR 029 may in certain cases lead to curious and illogical results that contradict the expectations of the users.
In a concrete component with at least three edges in a distance less than 1.5 times the embedment depth the resistance for conical concrete break-out, splitting and pry-out failure does not increase … What is the reason for this illogical behaviour?
DesignFiX is an all-purpose anchor design program for manufacturers of fasteners for free distribution to their clients such as engineers, planners or craftsmen. By using the program, the clients can design mechanical and chemical heavy duty anchors under static loads and under the influence of earthquake.
DesignFiX offers a Finite Element Program (FEM) for the calculation of the base plate thickness.
Finite Element Method: Under the provision that a valid design result is present, a profile was selected and at least one anchor is tension loaded, you can
