RE conducted the Chemical Anchor Pull Out Test. This chemical anchor was installed on the floor as moment-resisting support of the new column. Thus, this chemical anchor must be able to resist tension force according to the design. In this case, proof load according to the design was applied. Test frames, load cells, displacement transducers, and the data acquisition system were used.
The Pull Out Test is one of the methods used to inspect an anchor’s load carrying capacity. This test determines the tensile strength capacity. The tested load will be applied in the parallel direction to the anchor using a hydraulic pump with a load measuring system. Displacement of the tested anchor is measured by a displacement transducer which shows real-time data. The Pull Out Test conducted by RE complies with the ASTM E488-10 standard.
