These test methods address the tensile and shear strengths of post-installed and cast-in-place anchors in test members made of cracked or uncracked concrete. Loadings include quasi-static, seismic, fatigue, and shock. Environmental exposures include freezing and thawing, moisture, decreased and elevated temperatures, and corrosion. These test methods provide basic testing procedures for use with product-specific evaluation and acceptance standards and are intended to be performed in a testing laboratory. Product-specific evaluation and acceptance standards may add specific details and appropriate parameters as needed to accomplish the testing. Only those tests required by the specifying authority need to be performed.
WJE laboratories are accredited by ANAB (ISO/IEC 17025) and Miami-Dade County (TAS301-94) to perform testing standard ASTM E488 for Strength of Anchors in Concrete Elements.
