Influence of surface shape of glued anchors on their load capacity
The surface shape of the anchorages and their effect on the adhesion stress were analyzed. Anchors made of plain and threaded rods were put together. It was assessed whether a smooth bar in this type of anchorages could ful fill the actual role of a connector. Groups of anchors in various anchor systems were put together and smooth anchorages compared to threaded anchors. Four types of diameters were considered: Φ 8 mm, Φ 10 mm, Φ 12 mm and Φ 20 mm.
