Abstract: The overall objective of this paper is to evaluate four different procedures for predicting the concrete breakout capacity of tensile anchors under static and dynamic loading, and in uncracked and cracked concrete. An existing public-domain data base of tensile anchors was evaluated and updated. Observed capacities of tensile anchors failing by concrete breakout were compared with the predictions of four methods: the 45-Degree Cone Method; the CC Method, and a variation on it; and a "Theoretical Method." Each predictive method was then evaluated using Monte Carlo analyses to predict the probability of failure by concrete breakout, using the design framework of ACI 349-90, Appendix B "Steel Embedments."
