Specifiers Resource Book
The Ramset SPECIFIERS RESOURCE BOOK is a design aid which is popular with engineers and contains easy-to-understand technical product information, background theory, design methodology and guidance - all in terms of Australian and International Standards and conditions.
Selection of a concrete anchoring product is made on the basis of the type of fixing (bolt, stud or internally threaded), macro environment, (e.g. coastal or inland), micro environment (particular chemicals) and of course the capacity that best meets the design load case.
Where the fixing is simple and does not warrant strength limit state calculations, selection on the basis of load case is made simple with working load limit tables for each concrete anchor.
Where more rigorous design and strength limit state calculation is required, the simplified step-by-step method presented in this booklet will allow rapid selection and verification of the appropriate concrete anchor.
The Brick and Block anchoring section gives design professionals guidance as to the behaviour of a number of fixings suitable for use in a variety of both solid and hollow pre-manufactured masonry units.
The capacity information presented considers the elemental nature of pre-manufactured masonry units and advises designers as to suitable locations within the units accordingly.
We’re confident that you will find this book both useful and informative.
