ASTM E488 – Standard Test Methods for Strength of Anchors in Concrete Elements


These test methods address the tensile and shear strengths of post-installed and cast-in-place anchors in test members made of cracked or uncracked concrete.

Loadings include quasi-static, seismic, fatigue and shock. Environmental exposures include freezing and thawing, moisture, decreased and elevated temperatures and corrosion.
