Abstract: Since antiquity there has been a demand for more flexibility in the planning, design and strengthening of concrete structures in Europe. Although a wide variety of fastening systems have been invented over the years to help achieve this goal, our understanding of the behavior of these systems and the corresponding development of design provisions has only in the past three decades made significant advances. This paper gives a brief overview of the evolution of fastener design. Emphasis is placed on the importance of understanding the physics behind these problems and the need for a unified design approach throughout Europe.
