Concrete / UHPFRC anchor plates (“Hybridanker”) are designed for the use with post tensioning systems or ground anchors. High performance fibre reinforced concrete in combination with a high tensile strength material like steel or carbon fibres is used to absorb and transfer high forces from the tensile element to the structure. Composite anchor plates can therefore replace ordinary steel plates to anchor strands, bars or wires. Many advantages like low specific weight, flexible moulding in the manufacturing process, or durability against corrosion can be easily realized.
First application of the composite anchor plates has been realized at the Rhine lock in Iffezheim, where permanent multi-strand ground anchors had been installed. For the application, tests were performed according to the requirements of the ETAG 013 guideline to proof the resistance of the composite anchor plate and to secure a load transfer to the structure without damaging the existing concrete.
