Tensile behavior of post-installed chemical anchors embedded to low strength concrete

Özen, Muhammet Ali
In the scope of this paper, tensile capacities of post-installed chemical anchors embedded to 5.9 and 10.9 MPa concrete blocks are investigated. Pull-out tests are applied to 80 ductile steel bars (S420a). For the anchor diameters, 12, 16 and 20 mm are chosen. On the other hand, 10, 15 and 20 times the bar diameter are selected as free-edge distance and embedment depth for monotonic tensile loading tests. The results indicate that installation of anchors into low-strength concrete with sufficient embedment depth and free-edge distance is not unsafe as previously expected. To obtain ductile failure in low strength concrete, free-edge distance and embedment depth of minimum 15 times the anchor diameter" should be required. Furthermore, a comparison of test results with AC! 318 capacities is done and it is observed that ACI 318 has quite an over-conservative approach for the tensile capacity of post-installed anchors when low-strength concrete is considered.


Lateral stiffness of steel plate shear wall systems
Topkaya, Cem (Elsevier BV, 2009-08-01)
The accuracy of the finite element method and strip method of analysis for calculating the lateral stiffness of steel plate shear wall (SPSW) systems is assessed by making comparisons with experimental findings. Comparisons revealed that while both methods provide acceptable accuracy, they also require the generation of sophisticated computer models. In this paper, two alternative methods are developed. The first one is an approximate hand method based on the deep beam theory. The classical deep beam theory...
Parameter optimization on compressive strength of steel fiber reinforced high strength concrete
Ayan, E.; Saatcioglu, Oe.; Turanlı, Lutfullah (Elsevier BV, 2011-06-01)
This paper illustrates parameter optimization of compressive strength of steel fiber reinforced high strength concrete (SFRHSC) by statistical design and analysis of experiments. Among several factors affecting the compressive strength, five parameters that maximize all of the responses have been chosen as the most important ones as age of testing, binder type, binder amount, curing type and steel fiber volume fraction. Taguchi analysis techniques have been used to evaluate L-27 (3(13)) Taguchi's orthogonal...
Hybrid fiber reinforced self-compacting concrete with a high-volume coarse fly ash
Sahmaran, Mustafa; Yaman, İsmail Özgür (Elsevier BV, 2007-01-01)
This paper presents a study on the fresh and mechanical properties of a fiber reinforced self-compacting concrete incorporating high-volume fly ash that does not meet the fineness requirements of ASTM C 618. A polycarboxylic-based superplasticizer was used in combination with a viscosity modifying admixture. In mixtures containing fly ash, 50% of cement by weight was replaced with fly ash. Two different types of steel fibers were used in combination, keeping the total fiber content constant at 60 kg/m(3). S...
CFRP-confined concrete columns under different environmental conditions
Erdil, Barış; Akyüz, Uğurhan; Yaman, İsmail Özgür (Thomas Telford Ltd., 2013-06-01)
The behaviour of carbon fibre reinforced polymer-confined cylindrical and prismatic concrete specimens subjected to several different environmental conditions was investigated in four groups. The first group of specimens was used as a reference. In the second group, specimens were exposed to dry heating-cooling (H-C) cycles in the environmental test chamber (ETC), whereas specimens in the third group were kept in water while simultaneously being subjected to H-C cycles in the ETC. Finally, the last group of...

A practical and powerful technique for the discrete representation of reinforcement in finite element analysis of prestressed and reinforced concrete structures is presented. Isoparametric quadratic and cubic finite elements with movable nodes are developed utilizing a correction technique for mapping distortion. Reinforcing bars and/or prestressing tendons are modeled independently of the concrete mesh. Perfect or no bond as well as any bond-slip model can easily be represented. The procedure is succes...
