Residual Load Testing of Anchor Bolts

Complete Control of Schedule Size with dataTaker

Anchor_boltsCAS DataLoggers recently supplied the data logging solution for a world-leading manufacturer of masonry fasteners. As part of their product development, company engineers needed to measure the peak installation load and to monitor how the load reduced as the newly- installed fastener “bedded in”. Designers needed to determine such factors as bolt tightness over given periods of time (months/years) when calculating the required capacity for fastening beams in buildings or for securing roofs in high winds.
