TMC needed to prove to the Engineer of Record (EOR) that a pile anchored to bedrock with a reinforced concrete socket would perform equally to one anchored with a post tensioned anchor rod. R&M worked with TMC and geotechnical engineering firm Shannon & Wilson to design an innovative and more easily constructible solution that had higher uplift capacity and lower deflections then the specified rock anchors.
First, discharge the gas in the airbag, then gradually dismantle the data acquisition system, loading system, and counterforce system, and then pull out the whole gas-filled anchor rod from the anchor hole, and pull the pulling rod and the force transmission rod out in order.
The initial gap [h.sub.valve] between the inlet valve and the stopper and the [h.sub.gap] between the anchor rod and the inlet valve are set to 0.5[micro]m in the fluid analysis model.
It can be seen through the figure structure that there appeared a backing layer, an adhesive layer, and others between fiber gratings and anchor rod after pasting.
As an effective reinforced measure to slope, anchor rod has the advantages of simple construction, being fast, having less quantity of project, and so forth.
Frame part forms beam frame structure system, the head of anchor rod connected with the frame in the intersection of the column and beams, inner end anchor is fixed in the soil, the soil of frame beam is transmitted from anchor head to steel rod, and then, through the friction, it is passed to the surrounding soil of anchorage zone to support the earth pressure force of frame structure.
A 1-1/8-inch plastic gas line was severed when workers, drilling a vertical hole to install an anchor for a guy line to support a utility pole, struck a large buried slab of concrete, bending the anchor rod and causing it to strike the gas line.
The anchor rod may have snapped and the ship drifted near the shore where high winds and waves are believed to have swamped the vessel.
The mechanical characteristics, structural characteristics, and working mechanism of several typical bolts are analyzed by Professor He MC, and a new type of an energy-absorbing anchor rod is developed which is called the constant resistance and large deformation bolt (CRLB).
The anchor rod may have snapped and the ship drifted near shore where high winds and waves are believed to have swamped the vessel.
The anchor rod is a long rod rigged with a large wire and weight "anchor" hook which is cast as far as possible from the pier into deep water.
