4 pp.; 2011
To assist the design Engineer in coordinating the adhesive anchor design into cohesive construction and installation requirements for the design drawings, CRSI has prepared this Technical Note presenting recommended General Notes for Adhesive Anchor Installation. As appropriate, the individual notes have been augmented with commentary for the Engineer / Specifier. Many of the notes are consistent with the requirements in ACI 318, and the adhesive material qualification requirements stipulated in ACI 355.4 . Other notes outline proper installation techniques, and the necessary qualifications of the anchor installer. The certification requirements of ACI 318 are highlighted in the notes, and recommended inspection and proof-load testing requirements are presented. The latter requirements represent recommendations from, the Concrete Anchor Manufacturer’s Association (CAMA) .
