Benefit to Attendees
The student will gain a working knowledge of the analysis and design of concrete anchor systems.
Anchor descriptions, analysis and design, and application to practical engineering projects.
In this lesson, you are required to download and study the following course content in PDF format:
Please click on
the above underlined hypertext to view, download or print the document for your
study. Because of the large file size, we recommend that you first save the
file to your computer by right clicking the mouse and choosing "Save Target
As ...", and then open the file in Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you still experience
any difficulty in downloading or opening this file, you may need to close some
applications or reboot your computer to free up some memory.
Through the use of procedures and practical examples, the analysis and design of anchor systems is presented.
Once you finish studying the above course content, you need to take a quiz to obtain the PDH credits.
