Abstract

Screw anchors are gaining popularity in construction due to simplicity of their installation, ability to load them straight after the installation and ease of their removal. Existing models to predict the strength of screw anchors under tensile loading are based on the assumption that anchors are installed in mature concrete. This assumption is normally violated to escalate construction time. There is limi­ted knowledge available in literature on behaviour of screw anchors in early age concrete. This research focuses on evaluating the behaviour of screw anchors installed and loaded in early age concrete.
