Abstract: The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) sponsored a comprehensive research program to assess the shear capacity of headed stud group anchorages. This program was initiated in response to new provisions introduced into the ACI 318 Building Code.
These new provisions are based on an extensive experimental database consisting mostly of post-installed anchor tests. Tests of headed stud anchorage groups loaded in shear, as used in precast construction, are not extensively reported in the literature.
The test program, conducted by Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc. (WJE), examined headed stud connections loaded toward a free edge (de3), loaded toward a free edge (de3) near a corner, loaded parallel to one free edge (de1), loaded parallel to two free edges (de1 and de2), loaded away from a free edge (de4), and in-the-field of a member, such that edge distance was not a factor. The information reported herein addresses one aspect of the overall test program, the steel capacity failure mode.
