Abstract: Modern construction is now using steel anchor bolts in order to assure the connection between different building components and to allow loads transmission in-between different elements of a structure. Over the past twenty years, much research work has been carried out on anchors in different countries of the world. The majority of the design models and methods proposed for this type of anchorage are based on a statistical empirical approach. Practice and tests have shown that they are not always predictive for a shear force although the values obtained are on the safe side.
This research work deals with the study of the behavior under shear loading of a single steel bolt anchored in concrete close to the edge or the corner of the concrete slab. The aim is to predict the failure modes and the failure load. The study is based on a numerical resolution using the finite element method. Different types of non linearity are considered in the model: non-linear behavior laws for steel and concrete, geometrical non linearity due to the large displacements and non linearity due to the change in the limit conditions i.e. contact.
