Abstract

There are a large number of anchorages that are never examined or tested throughout their lifetimes. This has prompted the development of a non-destructive anchorage integrity testing system, GRANIT (GRound ANchorage Integrity Testing). More recently a dynamic model has been developed allowing the different parts of the anchorage to be examined to identify their influence on the overall dynamic response, as measured at the top of the anchor bar. The model complements the GRANIT system and allows better understanding of the dynamic behaviour of anchorages. The model has been used to tackle several common issues that occur in modem anchorage practice including load estimation, debonding of the fixed anchor length, estimation of anchor free length, the influence of the anchor head influence and more recently anchorages placed in soil. This paper will review the use of the model in tackling these issues.
