Abstract: Under the sponsorship of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, a research program was carried out on the dynamic behavior of anchors (fasteners) to concrete. In this paper, the behavior of single and multiple tensile anchors is described. Under seismic loading, the tensile capacities of most anchors tested in this study were at least as high as under quasi-static loading. As a result, most anchors tested in this study, if designed for ductile behavior under quasi-static loading, would behave in a ductile manner under seismic-type loading as well. The above conclusions are not true for wedge-type expansion anchors. These tend to pull out and pull through under dynamic loading and should be evaluated individually to determine their seismic adequacy. The above conclusions are also not true for grouted anchors installed in cored holes. These tend to pull out in cracked concrete.
