SUPPORT BEHAVIOUR AND BEARING CAPACITY OF COMPRESSION ANCHORS. 2ND STAGE

TRAGVERHALTEN UND TRAGFAEHIGKEIT VON VERPRESSANKERN. 2. STUFE

IN STAGE 1 OF THE PROJECT 6 ANCHORS OF VARYING COMPRESSION WERE INCORPORATED INTO FOUR DIFFERENT TYPES OF SOIL AND LOADED TO FAILURE, MEASUREMENT BEING MADE OF FORCES AND MOVEMENT. LACK OF HOMOGENEITY IN THE SOILS AND DIFFERENCES IN THE MANUFACTURE OF THE ANCHORS MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO GIVE A CLEAR INTERPRETATION OF THE TENSILE TESTS. HOWEVER, CERTAIN IMPORTANT TRENDS IN THE INFLUENCE OF THE DIMENSION OF THE COMPRESSION MEMBER ON THE BEARING CAPACITY OF THE ANCHOR WERE RECOGNIZED, AND THESE ARE INTENDED TO BE CONFIRMED BY THE TESTS TO BE CARRIED OUT IN PHASE 2 OF THE STUDY. IT IS INTENDED TO MANUFACTURE AND TEST 12 ANCHORS HAVING 3 DIFFERENT COMPRESSION MEMBER DIAMETERS. THE QUESTION OF THE TRANSFER OF FORCE FROM THE TENSILE MEMBER TO THE COMPRESSION BODY IS ALSO TO BE INVESTIGATED BY MEANS OF STRAIN GAUGES. FOR THE FIRST STAGE OF THE PROJECT SEE IRRD NO. 700933.
