Abstract: In the United States building codes allow increased design loads for expansion anchors whose installation has been verified to be in accordance with the engineer's design and the manufacturer's recommendations. The verification process is called special inspection. Adhesive anchors require special inspection for all installations with no increase in design loads. This paper describes the background of the building code provisions and typical procedures used to verify proper installation of expansion and adhesive anchors in concrete.
