Abstract: Under the sponsorship of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, a research program was carried out on the dynamic behavior of anchors (fasteners) in concrete. As part of that program, full-scale seismic tests were conducted at dynamic loading rates on 16 multiple-anchor connections to concrete. Test variables included anchor type, loading history, and the presence of cracks. Multiple-anchor connections designed for ductile behavior in uncracked concrete under static loading, in general behaved in a ductile manner in cracked concrete under dynamic loading.
