Review some anchorage to concrete basics and explore the basis of the Code provisions.

Anchorage to concrete was introduced to us in ACI 318-02 through Appendix D. Prior to its formal codification, the subject was treated through several sources: the model codes (UBC, BOCA, etc.), ACI 349 (Nuclear Structures Code), and the PCI Design Handbook. These sources considered only cast-in-place anchors in uncracked concrete. Post-installed anchor design was left to the anchor manufacturers and their catalog tables – some more comprehensive than others. Present Code design of anchors is contained in Chapter 17 of ACI 318-19.

Anchorages are usually non-redundant connections, and the consequences of failure can be high. This course will review some anchorage to concrete basics and explore the basis of the Code provisions. After 20 years of Code anchor design, this material will highlight some best practices for design and installation, based on issues seen in practice and on actual project sites. Proper application of the Code provisions is paramount to a successful anchor installation that performs as designed.
