Anchors

Anchors are stabilization and support elements that transfer tension loads, using high-strength steel bars or steel strand tendons. A full-length hole is drilled through the soil and into the bond zone in soil or rock using casing if necessary. Threadbar or strand tendon is inserted into the hole and the hole is filled with high-strength grout. Any casing used is then extracted. The length of bar or strand above the bond zone is covered by a bond breaker to eliminate load transfer above the bond zone. The anchor head is then generally tensioned and connected to the structure requiring the support.
