Single Tension Fastener Away from Edges Based on ACI 318-02

A single tension-loaded chemical fastener with M18 threaded rod is embedded in 32 MPa cracked concrete, 200 mm thick slab. The fastener has an effective embedment depth, het = 120mm and is located close to edge, c= 80 mm as shown below. Determine characteristic strength of the fastener based on concrete cone capacity. – Determine the characteristic strength, if the concrete was uncracked. – Determine the characteristic strength if the concrete was uncracked and the anchor was not close to the edge.
