Anchors in Theory and Practice / Anker in Theorie Und Praxis: Proceedings of the International Symposium, Salzburg, Austria, 9-10 October 1995

Over the past decades a great variety of anchor types has been developed for a multitude of different applications in soils, jointed rock or homogeneous concrete, and thus the experiences gained served a basis for futher development. Special importance was attached to the design of permanent anchors with protection against corrosion and to in situ monitoring in order to ensure the permanent contribution of anchors to the stability of the structure. More than 50 papers are focussing subjects that are of interest to designers, manufacturers, contractors and owners and are dealing with the topics load bearing capacity and effect of anchors, history cases, types of anchors as well as protection against corrosion and long term behaviour.
