Threaded End Anchors For Indian Rebars (HEAD-T)


Material Sciences

Focus Area:

Anchors Manufacturing

Social Benefits:

Application in reinforced concrete structures for both non seismic and seismic regions , Design of the anchor done in such a way that both the end plate and collar can take part in load bearing , The optimum size of the end anchors is attained from strength and feasibility criteria , Two types of end anchors (square and circular) designed and can be adopted as per the choice of the user , Head-T for different standard Indian rebar sizes, The thread geometry is arrived in such a way that least reduction in area is achieved and the grip does not fail before the rod
