Item description for Anchorage in Concrete Construction by Rolf Eligehausen, Rainer Mallie & John F. Silva...
A comprehensive treatment of current fastening technology including inserts, post-installed anchors, as well as power-actuated fasteners, in both concrete and masonry. The section "Fastenings in Concrete" describes in detail these elements together with their behavior and load-bearing capacities in cracked and uncracked concrete, while also considering the effects of corrosion and fire, as well as earthquake and shock loading. It concludes with an assessment of fastenings, illustrated by numerous examples. The "Fastenings in Masonry" section goes on to deal with several different types of masonry and describes the load bearing characteristics with an assessment of plastic fastenings and injection-molded anchors, including criteria for selecting the correct fastening.

Reviews - What do customers think about Anchorage in Concrete Construction?
In depth look at a topic often brushed aside. Sep 1, 2006
The concepts and ideas in this book are covered very well. Where other references and text books only scratch the surface and do not give engineers guidance in more challenging applications, this book helps tremendously.
This book will also help engineers undertand the mechanisms and failure modes of anchoring which is required now in the United State's International Building Code.
