Behaviour and design of fastenings with bonded anchors and connections with post-installed reinforcing bars, London

About this event

Many of us have been using embedded and post-installed anchors in concrete for some time now.

However, many Engineers have poor understanding of the failure modes and mechanisms used to verify their adequacy.Of even more concern is that many of us just design anchors on a static basis without understanding the response under applied dynamic loading, including low cycle and high cycle fatigue and response under high strain-rate loading (eg blast).

It is with great pleasure we have the opportunity to hear from Professor Eligehausen, who is a World leader in this subject, with many excellent publications and papers all well supported by extensive testing.

Speaker

Speaker - Professor Rolf Eligehausen, University of Stuttgart.
Chairman - Ian Smith, Chief Engineer, Design & Engineering, Atkins
