Design and Installation of Anchors
Concrete anchors, when used, are typically a critical design component. While often contributing to the stability and robustness of a structure, anchors can be overlooked as a secondary design element. Errors in design and installation can significantly reduce anchor capacity with the potential to result in catastrophic failure.
In this half day online seminar we will look at the design and installation of concrete anchors with a view to understanding what is required to achieve design intent. Covering key elements of design principles, anchor types and installation, testing and certification, to critical health and safety considerations, this seminar will examine these factors from an Engineer’s perspective. There will also be plenty of opportunities to ask questions during discussion.
Who should attend
This seminar will be of particular interest to Consulting Engineers involved in the design, specification and supervision of construction. Site Engineers, Main Contractors and Specialist Sub-Contractors will also benefit from attending.
