Abstract: Since design rules for post-installed anchors are usually based on investigations in unreinforced concrete, the design resistance of fixings set close to the concrete edge and loaded in shear towards the edge is low. It is therefore necessary to consider the effective strength of the reinforced concrete edge.
This paper first demonstrates that the current methods to take into account the strength of the concrete edge are insufficient in many cases and proposes different edge strengthening methods based on extensive laboratory testing. Finally a Eurocode 2 compatible design formula for cast-in hairpin reinforcement is derived.
