Pull out and shear load test on anchor bolt in situ

Anchor bolt tensile and shear test

Pull out test is one of method to inspect anchor’s carrying load capacity. This test focus on determine tensile strength capacity. Tested load will be applied parallel direction to anchor by hydraulic pump with load measuring system. Displacement of tested anchor is measured by displacement transducer which shows real time information.

Another kind of anchor’s carrying load capacity called “Shearing test”. This test focuses on shear capacity of tested anchor. Tested load will be applied perpendicular direction to anchor by hydraulic pump with load measuring system. Displacement transducer is also installed to measure displacement.

Both Pull out test and Shearing test is the best way to verify that anchor system able to resist load capacity without failure as designed.
