AASHTO TP 84
Standard Method of Test for Evaluation of Adhesive Anchors in Concrete under Sustained Loading Conditions
|Publication Date:||1 January 2011|
This test method applies to structures used in AASHTO applications and is applicable to adhesive anchor systems with steel anchors in predrilled holes in concrete.
This test method determines the time to failure for adhesive anchors in concrete at various levels of sustained loading.
The static load test is developed from ASTM E488 and the sustained load (creep) test is modified from ASTM E1512 and ICC-ES AC308.
This test method only addresses the effect of sustained loads on adhesive anchors. Numerous other factors affect the load capacity of adhesive anchors and a complete battery of tests is essential to evaluate an adhesive anchor. Refer to ICC-ES AC308 for a listing of some of the many factors and related test methods that apply to adhesive anchors.
