What is Anchor Pull Testing?
Our experts at ATS are the best when it comes to Anchor Pull Testing. The main purpose or objective for the use of this test is to measure the performance of the anchor installation, and verify that it will resist the pull out forces. Several parameters such as the capacity of the loading apparatus, the loading rate, the bearing ring size, and anchor embedment depth should be taken into account when setting up the test. Ideally, unless the purpose of the test is determining the maximum pull out force, the anchor bolt should not fail or show any movement at the specified load.
Our team can travel to many remote sites that most others can’t, which is simply an indication of Applied Technical Services’ commitment to provide the best service to our clients as well as accurate assessment results in accordance with standard specifications.
Anchor pull tests ought to be performed in all types of rocks in which the construction anchor bolts will be installed into. When rock is bedded, schistose or anisotropic, the tests ought to be conducted in several orientations in relation to the anisotropy (acquiring different values when measured in different directions), including those at which the construction bolt may be installed.
